Typically, Gardenias are very fickle, picky plants that can only grow in just the right conditions. But your new Frost Proof Gardenia is very easy to grow… just plant and add water.
The scent of the Gardenia bloom is intoxicating and the Frost Proof Gardenia not only retains that quality, but also showers you with an abundance of those heavenly fragrant white blooms.
Reported to even be hardy in the Midwest, Frost Proof Gardenia allows more homeowners to enjoy that sweet summery smell over a much wider part of the country than ever before.
Frost Proof Gardenia is a densely leaved shrub with a beautiful symmetrical shape.
Deer resistant is another one of the great attributes it has to offer.
Cold spells don’t seem to bother the Frost Proof; the flower buds hang on and burst open to reveal snowy white petals packed with perfume.

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.
Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Frost Proof Gardenia.
If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Frost Proof Gardenia gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Frost Proof Gardenia again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
