Creeping Dwarf Gardenia, Radicans

Regular price $20.00 Sale

Gardenia jasminoides 'Radicans'

Although the low-growing, -spreading nature of Gardenia Radicans requires that it be referred to as ñcreeping,î here at TCN&L it has always been called ñdwarf,î 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 groundcover for east and southeastern exposures. Photo credits: Erv Evans, NCSU; Peter Hogg
