Gardenia Florida makes a great potted plant for patios, courtyards and balconies or planted in the garden. Growing approx 1m x 1m, Florida is evergreen with bright, highly glossy leaves and deliciously fragrant double white flowers from late spring until autumn. Performs best when grown in dappled shade or a south facing position in the Canberra region. Protect from heavy winter frosty and burning summer sun. Soil must be very well drained, composted and slightly acidic, as with Camellias for example.
