Double Mint Gardenia
Gardenia jasminoides 'Double Mint' PP23,507
Hardy from zones 6-9, the Double Mint Gardenia will put you in a trance. It seems that this novel hybrid was cultivated to be a super gardenia. Featuring double flowers meaning more petals creating a fuller, more tangible, solid bloom that are 2” inches in diameter. What’s more is that these compact, rounded evergreen shrubs bloom not once, but twice a year as if receiving an encore to take the stage again. The first time is in Spring welcoming in the new year to show how lovely your garden really is and then in the Summer to early Fall, as if to usher in the end of the warmer months. Not only is its appearance worth mentioning. The Double Mint Gardenia is incredibly fragrant springing with fresh, floral aromas all throughout the day. A more uncommon thing to note is that their smells become more potent at night because their main form of pollination is from moths which are most active at night. With this compact shrub you get double the petals, double the flowers, double the amount of blooms, and that means double the fragrant appeal which you will love. Just remember to take care of your plant and it will give you much in return to enjoy for many years to come.
