    Frost Proof Gardenia

    More about Frost Proof Gardenia...

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    The Frost Proof Gardenia was the winner of the 2007 Garden Writers Best Plants Award for very good reason. Unlike some of the older, more finicky varieties, Frost Proof are unaffected by late cold snaps, and thrive on neglect. An abundance of sweetly fragrant, velvety, double white flowers are produced from spring through mid-summer on upright bushy plants that have a narrower leaf similar to that of Gardenia radicans.  The flowers of Frostproof are great for cutting, lasting longer than the flowers of other gardenia varieties.

    Uses

    Frost Proof Gardenia a fine selection for foundation plantings or or as a fragrant hedge. Make sure to plant it near windows or outdoor living spaces where the wonderful fragrance can be enjoyed!

    Culture

    Plant Frost Proof Gardenia in locations that provide well-drained soils and part sun. In our gardens we plant Gardenias where they will receive morning to early afternoon sun with mid-afternoon shade or filtered sun. Late afternoon and evening sun is okay. Gardenias prefer an acid soil ranging from 4.5 to 6.0. Alkaline soil can cause chlorosis and dimished blooming. That being said, yellowing and shedding of older leaves right before or after flowering is normal. To increase soil acidity add soil sulfur, chelated iron and/or aluminum sulfate. Pruning is not required however can be done after bloom to maintain a more dense plant. Ceasing pruning two months prior to the first typical frost date in your area. Frost Proof are unaffected by late cold snaps. That being said, temperatures below 10 degrees can cause some damage.

    I loved it. It arrived in great condition, grew beautifully, and blossomed tons. BUT I think this horribly cold winter on Cape Cod killed it!!!!! I am determined to think this Winter was an aberration and am planning to buy 2 more!!!!

    I love it but unfortunately this is not a prefect plant for Orlando weather and I could have plant them in a better location with less sun. I'm glad I got to enjoy a season....I have three left so far trying very hard to save them...if you live in at cooler place this is a perfect plant for you.

    We placed an order with GardenerDirect for the Gardenia "Frost Proof" after doing some on-line research to find a good selection for our location. The plant arrived quickly, in good condition, and was somewhat larger than we expected -- especially considering that other nurseries are charging a lot more for a much smaller plant. So although this was our first experience with GardenerDirect, it certainly won’t be our last.

    My local nurseries didn’t carry the Frost Proof Gardenia, so I started my search online and found GardenerDirect.com! What a blessing! The prices are very, very, very reasonable! My shopping experience was easy and my items were delivered in excellent condition. The Gardenias arrived with many buds awaiting to bloom! I’ll shop for more exotic plants from this site!

    My gardenia arrived in perfect condition, well packaged and no sign of a rough journey. It is a good sized specimen costing significantly less than other nurseries offering this plant. I am delighted with my first experience with Gardener Direct and will no doubt return.
