Roses, Lilacs, Jasmine, Lavender. There are a few flowers that are so associated with their scent that it is impossible to even say their name without thinking about how they smell. One of the most intoxicating and unforgettable floral scents of all is the Gardenia. August Beauty Gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides 'August Beauty') brings that heady floral scent to your home garden, and in a big way!

The fragrance reminds us of starlit summer nights in the south, luxurious French perfume, white wedding bouquets and boutonnieres on rented black tuxes for prom. Gardenias are an upright, dense, evergreen that fits about anywhere and looks amazing while doing it! The glossy dark green leaves look lovely year-round in your landscape, allowing you to enjoy four-season

Pollinators adore these blooms and florists do too for corsages and boutonnieres since these gorgeous blooms are already in bridal white! Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 8 through 11, these plants just shine in the sun! Growing to a mature height of 3-5 feet tall and a narrow 2-3 mature feed wide.

Planting and Application:

Evergreen and a prolific bloomer, this Gardenia will be a great addition to your landscape. You definitely want to plant it where you and your visitors can enjoy it - by a walkway, flanking the front entrance, or closing in garden rooms. The radiant white blooms and glossy leaves are perfect for a Moon Garden!

Make sure it is within reach because you will definitely be cutting these to bring indoors. Float several in a bowl of water for a gorgeously classic centerpiece that will perfume your entire room. August Beauty is just as versatile as a year-round hedge and privacy screen around your seating areas, reading nooks and meditation gardens where the fragrance will whisk you away from your day's cares!

  • Extraordinarily Scented Flowers
  • Low-Maintenance & Easy Care
  • Rich Dark Green Evergreen Foliage
  • Reblooming
  • Wonderful Hedge or Container Plant

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Loving the full sun, and a touch of part shade, Gardenia do best where they are protected from the cold, drying winter winds. Preferring morning sun and a touch of shade in the hottest southern sun, however, shrugs off the high humidity of the south with ease! Water well while they're establishing, and plant in organically rich, well-draining soils.

  • Full Sun & Partial Sun
  • Moist Enriched Well-Drained Soil
  • Prune After Flowering
  • Shrugs Off Heat & High Humidity
  • Deer Resistant

Don't deny yourself the pleasures of the silky white fragrant blooms of August Beauty Gardenia. Order them for your garden from today!
