Gardenia 'Crown Jewels'

Cape Jasmine

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").

Culinary note: Use these extremely fragrant blooms in jams and preserves or add to cakes for extra flavour. For more details about edible flowers click here.

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. Also disappointed

    By Renata Boyle 09-08-2016

    Bought two of these a few months ago, followed instructions on soil/potting etc, they have barely grown an inch, leaves keep going yellow and dropping off, googled this plant and found information contrary to that on here, it said they are an 'indoor plant' and should be in ericacious soil.

  2. Very disappointing

    By Ramesh Thakrar 28-07-2016

    I had this sent, came in looking great; after leaving in the pot for the a few days; put in the garden. What happened? Slowly died. Phoned and complained, and they sent another 2 - same crap - just sits in garden, no new leaves; old leaves turn brown and die. Worst plant ever, and to spend over £20 + PP - -JOKE.
