It can grow as large shrub or small specimen tree up to 8-10 ft tall and as wide. Ululani is a female name in Hawaii, meaning "heavenly inspiration".
Grown in a pot, Gardenia Ululani can be taken indoors in cold regions. Gardenia is a relatively slow growing plant and requires a rich, well drained soil. Planting it in a pot requires good soil and proper watering. The pot must have good drainage. Avoid overwatering and fertilize with a balanced fertilizer once or twice a month. If placed in a cold area, it should be brought indoors during cold months or provided with protection from wind and frost.
Gardenia Ululani is a perfect choice for small gardens as it attracts butterflies and hummingbirds with its fragrant yellow/orange flowers. With proper care, its glossy foliage and beautiful bloom can be enjoyed for many years.
