#ProPlantTips for Care:

Gardenia bushes are sun worshipers and do very well in any bright light, direct or not, both indoors and out. They also do well in part sun locations, especially in the hottest of their growing zone range, where they'd appreciate afternoon shade. Plant in consistently moist soil that has great drainage, never allowing your plant to become waterlogged. Keep the soil well mulched to aid insulation and moisture retention.

  • Full Sun & Part Shade
  • Well-Drained Enriched Organic Soil
  • Moderate Consistent Moisture & Fertility
  • Prune After Flowering
  • Easy to Maintain Tree-Form
