Gardenia 'Crown Jewels'

Hardy Shrub

 Customer Rating
Who'd have imagined an outdoor hardy gardenia a few years ago? With its pearly white, waxy blooms, 'Crown Jewels' will be a prized specimen from the moment it's delivered to you. And don't underestimate the fragrance... it's far too powerful for the home. But that doesn't really matter as they look just lovely growing in the garden. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 120cm (47").

patio, scented gardens, exotic garden

July, August, September

Plant gardenia in sheltered borders or containers in any well drained, rich fertile, neutral to acid soil. Choose a sheltered position in dappled or semi shade. Water regularly until gardenia plants are fully established. Where possible, use rainwater as the lime contained in tap water will reduce the soils acidity over time.
Feed hardy gardenia plants regularly throughout the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Whilst this variety of gardenia is perfectly hardy, it will appreciate some winter protection during particularly cold periods. In very cold climates, container-grown plants may be moved to a cool, frost-free position for the winter. In spring, lightly prune stems to maintain their shape.

  1. Very Very Disappoited

    By Kalpana Patel 17-12-2015

    Ordered 4 plants and followed instructions for soil and used rain water too, and thought that I shall grow them indoors and when big enough shall plant them outdoors. Unfortunately, none of them survived they went yellow and brown and died. On complaining, T&M did replace these with new ones with buds last November. But again the plants were as if stunned. No growth at all. In summer I took them out and they just dried out. I think that this variety is not for our UK weather.

  2. Gardenia Crown Jewels

    By Robin Saunders 14-06-2015

    Bought 2 plants and planted them in pots 4 months ago. It is now June and plant 1 looks like it was just delivered- not a single shoot from the day it arrived. Plant 2 has loads of shoots starting to appear so live in hope. I still can't see it being like the picture this year as long long way to go to get anywhere near that. Will give an update in 2025.
