Sweet Star® Gardenia

Gardenia jasminoides 'PIIGA-III' PP29,448

Sweet Star® Gardenia

Blooming into late summer and early fall, Sweet Star® Gardenia is covered in single flowers starting early May followed by excellent rebloom throughout summer. As flowers fade, they are followed by pretty orange fruit in fall. Sweet Star® is nicely compact and rounded in the landscape, and has glossy green leaves that serve as a lovely backdrop to the crisp white flowers. Reliably cold hardy in Zone 7, this variety extends the typical range for this fragrant garden favorite.
