The Gardenia Sweet Heart® is a shrub with beautiful, simple and star-shaped flowers that release a heady perfume. The first flowers emerge at the end of spring – beginning of summer. The display is sustained throughout the summer months with a generous production of flowers once the plant is well settled in. Gardenia Sweet Heart ® has a beautifully varnished and persistent foliage.
Its excellent growth, ready branching, easy cultivation and relative resistance to frost allow the use as a garden Gardenia or terrace plant.
The gardenia is sensitive to draughts, it is best to plant it in a sheltered position.
prune after flowering, use a slow release fertilizer in spring
