Gardenia jasminoides, Gardenia augusta

Bush Gardenia, Cape Jasmine, Bunga Cina
Family: Rubiaceae
Origin: South China
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Gorgeous, dark to bright green, opposite leaves on a shrub that can grow up to 6' with almost equal spread. Leaves are glossy and leathery. Mature shrubs usually look round, and have a medium texture. Blooms in mid-spring to early summer, over a fairly long season. Flowers are white, turning to creamy yellow as they age, and have a waxy feel. They have a powerful, sweet fragrance, and can perfume an entire room. Air currents waft the scent throughout the warm summer garden. Gardenias prefer acid, moist, well-drained soils. Use fertilizer for acid loving plants, and use iron compounds. Add plenty of organic matter, such as compost or ground bark, to as large an area as possible. Mulch plants instead of cultivating. A good time to feed gardenias is mid-March, using an acid plant food, fish emulsion or blood meal. Feed the shrubs again in late June to encourage extra flowers on everbloomers or faster growth of young shrubs. Do not fertilize gardenias in the fall. Doing so will stimulate tender growth, which may be killed if the temperature in winter drops below 15 degrees.

This plant is often seen labeled as Gardenia jasminoides which is now a synonym and no longer valid.

Gardenia mutabilis

Golden Gardenia
Family: Rubiaceae
Origin: Malesia
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrant

Gardenia mutabilis was previously misidentified and misnamed in the trade as Gardenia gjellerupii.

Woody shrub or small tree, can reach up to 5 m tall. Flowers are solitary, initially cream-coloured to light yellow and then become orange-yellow or orange at maturity.

This species is best planted in full sun, because shady conditions inhibit flowering and result in leggy plants.

Dwarf Gardenia Radicans
Family: Rubiaceae
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeKeep soil moistRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

A dwarf variety suitable for bonsai. Small leaved, almost creeping version of the species. 1-2" diameter flowers, very fragrant. This is a perfect plant for both indoor gardining or small gardens and patio. The plant stays compact under 1 ft, and will be covered with fragrant white flowers from Spring to Fall. Very easy to grow to compare with other gardenias. Do not allow to dry out and remain dry. On the other hand, this gardenia is very sensitive to over-watering, so be very careful and use only well-drained soil with lots of perlite or/and bark. Use a fertilizer formulated for acid-loving plants, at half- strength. Do not fertilize while the plant is in bloom. Read more about gardenias.
