The Perfect Perfume for dressing up your Garden

The sweet aroma of gardenia evokes some of the best memories of summers past.

Now you can make new memories for years to come by planting a beautiful Gardenia right in your own garden.

The fragrant white flowers emit an scent so pleasurable, the Gardenia is just what you need to relax on weekends and melt life's stresses away.

Place them in pots around the patio or strategically plant them in the garden to create your own personal paradise.

Apart from the wonderful perfume that will permeate your retreat, the blossoms will add to the allure because they look as amazing as they smell. For that reason Gardenias are wonderful as potted entryway trees, welcoming visitors by arousing their senses.

The smooth 3 inch double-blossoms maintain a character all their own with layers of pretty white petals surrounding a delicate yellow core.

These incredible flowers are supported visually by the backdrop of shiny green leaves.

The ensemble of white floral beauty, deep green leaves and intoxicating aroma complete the Gardenia as one of the most appealing specimens you can add to any location you choose.

Remember, sometimes how your garden smells can be as important as how it looks. Order yours today.

Beautiful Healthy Tree
My gardenia tree arrived today. It was so healthy and nice sized. I had one at my previous home and was not able to find another one locally. I was hesitant to purchase online but am so glad I did. I immediately planted it next to my patio where I can enjoy its amazing fragrance. I will certainly be purchasing more from your company. Thank you.

Very Nice
I was very happy with the size, I have not planted the tree but have it in a small patio pot and, still, the bloom are still coming. I will plant the tree after knowing for sure it can withstand direct full sun heat in the summer. The smell is great.

Beauty out of the box
I was amazed at the shipping process. From order to my front door 3 days. When I opened the box everything was packed snug and to my surprise no damage or breakage on my Gardenia tree. It was loaded with blooms. I let it rest a day and then transplanted it into its new pot and within 2 days of getting replanted I had beautiful amazing flowers all over my tree. It continues to produce blooms and flowers filling my front porch and living room with the beautiful aroma that only the Gardenia can give.
I had one friend so impressed she had to go and order herself one. AMAZING .....

We love the gardenia. We had 5 large blooms, but then we had some crummy cool weather, so it hurt the blooming. It was delivered in perfect condition. We love our gardenia.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Double Blooming Gardenia Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Double Blooming Gardenia Tree.

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Double Blooming Gardenia Tree 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.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

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 Double Blooming Gardenia Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Help, My buds are not opening! They are turning yellow at base and falling off?
Paula V on May 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: How are you watering it? Usually this means you are overwatering it or under watering it. Gardenias are a little picky. I found what works best is to buy a large vase with a hole in the bottom and getting a large saucer and fill it with water works better than watering from the top and watering with about 1/2 cup every other day on top. That is what worked for me.
I have had my tree about 2 months. It looks very healthy, has many buds that look like they will open any time but none have opened. Any suggestions? It does receive adequate sun.
Lisee on May 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I also bought my tree in the spring, early April if I recall, and it also got buds but no blooms. I assume that my tree is using all of its energy to establish its root system during the first year and didn't have enough energy to finish opening the buds. It looks very healthy otherwise and loves the Florida sun and weekly rain. It should have healthy blooms next summer after it's had time to get stronger roots. Just be patient and continue giving her plenty of water and fertilizer. Best of luck!!
I live in Myrtle Beach, SC and was wondering if this can be planted outdoors ... ? When does it bloom and how long does the blooming season last? Thank You !
Kathy on Apr 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Kathy, it looks like you're in the correct region but if it freezes in the winter I'd suggest planting it in a container that can be taken inside during cold snaps. I just received mine about a month ago and it's already covered with buds. I don't know how long it'll bloom because this is our first growing season, but I'm assuming it's like gardenia bushes. I highly recommend this tree - it's beautiful and great quality.
I have ants on my gardenia tree that are eating my blooms and causing them to fall off what can I use to kill the ants without harming my tree?
Gail E on Jul 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I had issues with aphids and ants eating leaves of my plants: knockout roses, my columnar apple trees. I use dish soap diluted with water. I use a hand held sprayer and spray the leaves where there are aphids or ants. It kills the insects without harming the plant .
