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.
