The Buttons Gardenia is a prolific bloomer that provides a lot of visual interest and sweetly scented flowers in a compact package. Buds burst open to reveal pure white double blooms. The lovely flowers of Gardenia jasminoides 'Buttons' adorn the plant from summer through fall. The flowers are beautiful, but the sweet scent of the blooms takes this plant to the next level. Ovate, glossy deep green foliage, has smooth, rounded edges and is dense, filling in the plant and giving it a full form.

The compact size is ideal for containers or mixed beds with limited space. Since the Buttons Gardenia doesn’t get very big, it is perfect for gardeners who want the look and fragrance of a Gardenia without the effort necessary to maintain a large shrub. The compact Buttons Gardenia also works well alongside other Gardenia varieties and should be planted toward the front of the grouping.

Buttons Gardenia Care

Plant the Buttons Gardenia in full sun to partial shade. Give this plant fertile, moist soil with good drainage. The Buttons Gardenia has medium water needs, but container plants will need water when the top few inches of potting mix are dry. Apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture. Fertilize the plant using a plant food for acid-loving evergreens to keep the flowers blooming throughout the summer.

Move container plants to a protected area for the winter. Prune landscape plants in late summer after the flowers fade. Remove leggy branches and cut growth back by one-third to encourage a full, bushy form in the spring.

Buttons Gardenia Spacing

The Buttons Gardenia is a dwarf variety with a compact form. Mature shrubs reach 2 feet tall and wide. Space shrub 2 feet apart for a continuous planting or feature one plant in a 12-inch container.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
