Dwarf Gardenia Radicans

  • Impressive Flowers
  • 4-Season Interest
  • Great Container Plant

Dwarf Gardenia Radicans, Gardenia jasminoides ‘Radicans’, is an evergreen, flowering shrub. This small variety would make a great border along your sidewalk or perennial bed, or perhaps plant a few in containers to scatter about on your porch or front stoop.

Imagine an intense, sweet scent drifting through your window on a summer breeze…and that same scent greeting you every time you step out your front door. That’s what you can expect for much of your summer with a Dwarf Gardenia Radicans in your yard.

This dwarf variety is small enough to fit just about anywhere and does great in containers, so you can even plant a few to move indoors for winter. Its long-blooming flowers appear in semi-double blooms late spring to mid/late summer. Their fragrance is intense and sure to turn heads even more often than do the sight of the delicate, white blossoms. Dark green, shiny leaves that are leathery in texture will fill out your Gardenia, providing an elegant contrast against the white flowers.

Dwarf Gardenia Radicans has a gently rounded form and dwarf nature, so is much smaller than other Gardenia varieties.

The Dwarf Gardenia Radicans is relatively easy to care for, and will prove an asset not only to your home, but also to the wildlife that live there, as it’s a strong lure to pollinators.

Gardenias have long been valued for their elegant beauty and intense fragrance…and Dwarf Gardenia Radicans is no exception.
