This is our most popular and sought after Gardenia. It is the national flower of Tahiti. The glossy foliage can grow to a nice spread, however it can be trimmed for size control. Gardenia taitensis thrives on warm temperatures and full sun outdoors. The ideal temperature is above 50°F at all times and I would avoid freezing temperatures. Will grow great in pots. Flowers smell like heaven.
