Frost Proof Gardenia - Gardenia jasminoides 'Frost Proof' – is the perfect shrub for those who enjoy fragrant flowers. In the late spring and early summer, this shrub is covered in 2-3 inch wide, fragrant white flowers that will resist damage from late spring frosts. The dark green evergreen leaves persist all year-round and are deer resistant. This shrub thrives in containers or as part of a hedge. 

Frost Proof Gardenia Care 

Frost Proof Gardenia does best in well-amended, slightly acidic soils with good drainage. Water regularly, even after establishment. Fertilize and prune after the blooming season. 

Frost Proof Gardenia Spacing 

For a formal hedge, space plants 3 to 4 feet apart center-to-center. For a more informal planting, place shrubs at least five feet apart on-center.

    The gardenia seems to be thriving!

    Posted by Customer on May 17th 2020

    Still very variable conditions in suburban DC, so it's ensconced in our sunniest room. Some leaf yellowing and dropping after arrival, but pretty insignificant. Using our kitchen spray once a day seems to very effective means of keeping it happy. Several of the buds showed significant color this morning - blooms seems to be a day or two away, with more on the way! Ten days in we're very pleased.
