Sweet Tea Gardenia

Gardenia jasminoides 'PIIGA-II' PP27,258

This new reblooming double gardenia has tennis ball size flowers with the gardenia fragrance we all know and love. Sweet Tea is more upright and larger than Double Mint and is more winter hardy. It survived 4-6*F in 2013-2014 in an above ground container with no injury and is currently being tested for Zone 6 hardiness. That’s saying something since many other gardenias suffered severe damage during the same winter.
