Noteworthy Characteristics

Variegated Creeping Gardenia, Gardenia radicans, produces an abundance of sweetly fragrant, double, pure white flowers during spring into summer. The dark green lustrous leaves of the Creeping Gardenia are smaller and thinner than other varieties, providing a unique texture in the landscape. Over time, the plant can grow 2-3 feet in height with a spread of 4 feet or more. 

Uses

Unlike it's upright cousins, the growth habit is prostrate and spreading, making Creeping Gardenia a good selection for a bed edger or groundcover in landscape beds, or to trail over walls. Make sure to plant it near windows or outdoor living spaces where the wonderful fragrance can be enjoyed!

Culture

Plant Variegated Creeping Gardenia in locations that provide well-drained soils and mostly sun to part shade, prefering a break from the mid-afternoon sun. 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.
