Gardenias – The Perfume Flower

Posted

The pure white snow bloom of the Gardenia contrasted against its emerald green foliage is certain to send your senses soaring with its beautiful perfume! Gardenias are a beautiful flowering shrub with an exquisite perfume.

Their large creamy white flowers and glossy green leaves not only make them a very attractive garden plant, but they are also perfect as a fragrant hedge or in a pot near doorways, windows and outdoor seating areas.

Gardenias

There are three sizes of gardenias:

  • Radicans: a mounding groundcover
  • Florida – mid sized (up to 1.5m)
  • Grandiflora – taller, to 2m and larger - Gardenia magnifica or Professor Pucci

Gardenias are warm climate plants which are at their best in a mild, humid climate. When flowering, water well, particularly from spring to summer and protect them from the hot afternoon sun.

If you’re looking to add a bit of magic and romance to your garden, then the gardenia with is alluring perfume may be the perfect plant. Poppy’s Home and Garden have a large range of gardenias available. Talk to our friendly staff for more info on Ph: 49478255 or visit here
