Pluck a few of these gorgeous blossoms and float them in a shallow dish or bubble bowl to scent an entire room!

Also known as Cape Jasmine and Jessamine, the Miami Supreme Gardenia is very showy and adaptable to sun and soil conditions. Deer seem to avoid them and their fairly well resistant to pests and diseases. Growing best in frost-free USDA growing zones 8 through 11, these shrubs do not like the cold.

Planting and Application:

Your landscape will be transformed by either a single fragrant specimen or an incredibly fragrant hedge! No neighbor will mind having a living privacy barrier like this screening them off from your property! Plant a straight line or alternating zig-zag spaced 4-6 feet apart on center. You can prune or shear these shrubs into formal hedges, backdrops and informal border backgrounds, or plant them along your home's sunny foundation for an impressive four-season evergreen display!

Miami Supreme can be limbed up to reveal the lower multi-branched trunks for a specimen tree form, or left with the greenery to the ground for a rounded bushy informal focal point! Drop one at the corner of your home or soften the corners of a fence line. Be sure to plant one by your front door to perfume your entry, and around your back seating areas and garden beds where the fragrance and privacy will help whisk away your cares and worries!
