Gardenia 'Crown Jewel'

Crown Jewel® Gardenia is a low-growing, spreading gardenia with intensely fragrant, white double flowers beginning in early summer and repeating until frost. Light pruning after the first bloom-period will stimulate even more blossoms. It should be sheltered somewhat from cold winter winds to help to prevent tip dieback.  It is an excellent evergreen for containers where its intoxicating fragrance can be enjoyed on decks and patios.
