How to Grow and Care for Four Seasons Gardenia Shrub

Four Seasons Gardenia Shrub (Gardenia Jasminoides, Kimura Shikazaki) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 8-11 outdoors


Provide full to partial sun (at least 4 hours of sunlight daily) and southern, eastern, or western exposure indoors or out. Well-drained soil is also ideal for your Four Seasons Gardenia.

If you’re planting outdoors, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your shrub’s root ball, place your shrub and backfill the surrounding soil.

For indoor or patio growth, choose a container only 1 to 2 times larger than the shipped container and make sure there are adequate drainage holes in the bottom. Add enough soil so the plant will be level when it’s placed.


Check the surrounding soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your Four Seasons Gardenia. Water your potted Four Seasons Gardenia until water flows from the bottom drainage holes.


A steady feeding of a low concentration fertilizer under warm temperatures and high light is preferred. Reduce feeding during the winter and follow label instructions.


Prune your Four Seasons Gardenia after flowering. Pruning isn’t required but can be done for shaping.
