Grif's Select Hardy Gardenia Plant

Description

Grif's Select Hardy Gardenia is a fragrant evergreen shrub that grows up to 4 feet tall. Grown in zones 7-10, it produces large, white blooms in the summer.

Think growing gardenias is out of reach? You may want to give this compact gardenia a try. Unlike most gardenia cultivars, Grif's Select is reported to be winter hardy to zone 6 with some protection. Plant near an entrance to your home or a patio and enjoy its 3" white, daisy-like flowers and intense fragrance. The flowers look stunning against the glossy, dark green, evergreen foliage, and showy red seed capsules, or hips, add to its attractiveness. An introduction from the late J.C. Raulston of North Carolina State University, Grif's Select is noted for its compact form, small leaves and winter hardiness. It prefers neutral to acidic soil. Most gardenia cultivars are winter hardy to zones 7 or 8. It was reportedly developed from seed obtained by Michael Dirr from the Beijing Botanic Garden. Gardenia 'Grif's Select'

Characteristics

  • Gardenia jasminoides, commonly called common gardenia or cape jasmine, is native to southern China and Japan and is an evergreen shrub with thick, glossy, dark green leaves (to 4” long). It typically grows to 3-6’ tall.
  • It is particularly noted for its extremely fragrant white flowers (to 3” diameter) and is often grown in double-flowered forms. Flowers bloom throughout the year in warm climates where temperatures do not dip below 60°F.
  • In the St. Louis region, gardenias are grown as pot or larger container plants. They grow well in greenhouses and conservatories, but can also thrive when placed outdoors during the summer months and returned to moderate indoor temperatures in the fall. They are prized for their large, very fragrant flowers and are quite often given as gifts to gardening enthusiasts.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
