Blooms on the Bush... Not the ground!
Finally... a fragrant gardenia plant that won't lose its flowers after late spring frosts.
I love Gardenias, but refuse to spray chemicals or cover my plants.
Old gardenia plants are insect prone and finicky. Your soil can't be too moist or too dry. Then the occasional late frost comes and wipes out your blooms for the whole season.
New Frost Proof Gardenias are unaffected by cold snaps and thrive on neglect. They adapt to a variety of soil conditions... do great in full sun or partial shade... and resist insects and disease. Even deer leave them alone.
The Frost Proof won the "2007 Garden Writers Best Plants Award" for good reasons.
They're just as beautiful as they are tough. You get huge, velvety white flowers that bloom in pairs.
They start blooming in late spring. These flowers last longer after being cut than old Gardenia varieties.
I planted several Gardenia bushes between my neighbor and I as a privacy hedge. We both pick flowers like crazy and can't make a dent in them.
I put the blooms in bowls throughout the house and even keep one in my car.
Frost Proof also makes a great evergreen foundation hedge. They are bushy and well branched. They look great pruned or left natural.
Plant several for a fragrance you can smell from a distance.
You won't find Frost Proof plants in big box stores for several more years. They only offer new plants when a large number of educated customers request the variety by name. Meanwhile, they continue to sell the same problem-plagued varieties.
We refuse to sell 2 quart or smaller sized plants. Instead, you get fully rooted, well developed 1 and 3 gallon plants that will give you blooms the very first season.
Order your gardenia plants now while our supply of large sizes is still available.
