Kleim's Hardy Gardenia
Hardiest of the Gardenias
Kleim’s Hardy Gardenia, Gardenia jasminoides 'Kleim's Hardy', is a fragrant, evergreen shrub. Plant several along a border, use one as an accent near a door or plant a few as container plants for your home. No matter where you plant these you’re sure to enjoy a remarkable display and scintillating scent.
The Kleim's Hardy Gardenia is one plant you’ll want to keep close by. With its enchanting beauty and spellbinding fragrance, Gardenias are among the most impressive plants for the home garden.
Kleim’s 2-inch, single blossoms appear in late spring/early summer--a 6-petaled delicacy of waxy, white blooms with yellow centers. Each flower emits a divine, heavenly fragrance that is so intense it will announce itself long before your approach. Your Kleim’s Hardy Gardenia also features dark green, glossy foliage that will fill out your shrub nicely even when not in bloom.
Of course the feature that sets Kleim’s apart from other Gardenias is that it’s considered the hardiest of them all, able to tolerate cold like no others.
Your Kleim’s Hardy Gardenia will reach a height of 2 to 3-feet with an equal spread. It is a dwarf variety, so you can easily manage one even if you’re short on space. Kleim’s has a mounded habit, is evergreen and very hardy.
If you love Gardenias but don’t have the space, or are worried about your climate, then this is the Gardenia for you. Kleim’s Hardy Gardenia will not only squeeze in just about anywhere, but its cold hardy nature and tenacious spirit are sure to make having one of these remarkable plants a reality for you this year.
