Radicans 'Creeping Dwarf' Gardenia

Regular price $20.00 Sale

Gardenia jasminoides 'Radicans'

Although the low-growing, spreading nature of Gardenia Radicans requires that it be referred to as 'creeping'  here at TCN&L it has always been called 'dwarf' as well, because the degree to which it will spread depends on the quality and moisture of tits soil.

Other distinguishing features are its petite, leathery, lustrous, dark-green leaves and the many small, fragrant white flowers that appear in summer. Excellent evergreen ground-cover for east and southeastern exposures.

* Deer Resistant *

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