Noteworthy Characteristics

August Beauty Gardenia is a wonderfully fragrant and double-flowered variety that produces an abundance of pure white, 2-1/2 inch flowers from mid-spring into summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting and using in indoor arrangements. The dark green leaves of August Beauty are very lustrous on an upright, dense shrub to about 5 to 6 feet in height with a 4 to 5 foot spread.


August Beauty Gardenia is an excellent choice for foundation plantings, in shrub borders, or as a natural or formal hedge. Make sure to plant it near windows or outdoor living spaces where the wonderful fragrance can be enjoyed!


August Beauty Gardenia is easy to grow and low maintance. Plant it 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. Foliage will turn pale-green to yellow and blooming can and often will be seriously diminished in alkaline soils. 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. Follow application instructions on product label. Pruning is not required however can be done after bloom to maintain a formal hedge. Ceasing pruning two months prior to the first typical frost date in your area.
