First Editions Double Mint Gardenia

  • First Editions® Plants
  • Great, new evergreen
  • Amazing fragrance
  • Easy care

If you are lucky enough to live in a place where gardenias grow in your garden, then you absolutely MUST plant the newest gardenia on the market – First Editions® Double Mint Gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides ‘Double Mint’).

Why? Because Double mint has double the petals, double the flowers, double the bloom time and double that intoxicating fragrance you grow gardenias for in the first place. The double flowers are a whopping 2 inches across on strong stems- perfect for small bouquets and buttonholes should you want to take the fragrance with you. The flowers bloom profusely in the spring and re-bloom again in the summer all the way to fall, longer than many other gardenias.

This compact shrub doesn’t grow out-of-bounds and is perfect for small space gardens and foundation plantings. The glossy leaves are evergreen and lush year-round.

So, what if you don’t live in a place where you can grow these beautiful flowers outdoors? You’ll be happy to know that they will thrive in your favorite container in a sunny window all winter, even while the snow flies outside.

This is a remarkably easy plant to grow and it pays you over and over with its breathtaking flowers.
