Dwarf Gardenia Radicans
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.

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful
