Zoom In Photo:

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus! This is a HARDY gardenia! The star-like single flowers have an intense and intoxicating fragrance and appear most profusely in early summer and sporadically thereafter. This extremely hardy selection has survived minus 18 degrees Celsius! Prefers full sun to light shade and will bloom best where walls or patios provide extra night time warmth in spring and summer. Plant in a protected location just to be safe. Evergreen.
