Gardenia x 'Crown Jewel'


The Crown Jewel™ Gardenia makes a perfect addition to a cutting garden. Her blooms are double petals with a lacy look that produce more abundantly than other gardenias. And her fragrance is the most beautiful! This gardenia has a spreading growth nature and is cold hardy. It is a perfect choice for mass plantings or even in a container for an accent plant.

Joseph's Take

Joseph's Take

Crown Jewel is a newish Gardenia, its defining feature is its blooms which are more dynamic than older Gardenias. I usually plant any Gardenia in a semi shady area near a structure in zone 6-10. In colder climates, Gardenias will need more protection from winter conditions.
