Mystery Gardenia , except in size,  is similar to August Beauty; also, its blooms are very large.

All gardenias prefer warm, well drained soil. Blooms will appear in mid-spring and continue sporadically into early summer.

Ideally plant Westward facing area. Avoid Eastern Exposure. Gardenias do not like Morning Winter Sun
