Gardenia Joy

Category: Gardenia

 This Australian bred Gardenia produces an abundance of perfumed, single flowers throughout spring. The clean, glossy foliage provides a beautiful back drop for the flowers and looks attractive all year round. Perfect for planting next to the carport or letterbox to catch the fragrance each time you pass by. Dense foliage and a freebranching habit make this plant good as an informal hedge or border.
