Gardenia jasminoides 'Frostproof'

Showy, Wonderfully Fragrant Flowers on this Evergreen Shrub. Flowers in Late Spring with some flowers surprisingly pop up through the Summer.   

Frostproof Gardenia was selected as a Louisiana Super Plant because of its adaptability & reliability. A more upright habit and more tolerant of direct sun exposure than other gardenias, with flower buds that resist late spring frosts without damage.  

Attracts the seldom-seen Hummingbird Moths. 

This plant is also known as Cape Jasmine
