Lucky you......

Yes, very lucky. :>))

Gardenia jasminoides 'Mystery' is still my favorite variety. It has gigantic flowers. The fragrance reminds of my home state of Hawaii. :>))

Lol but it looks good.

Yes, this one and my much larger one Gardenia thunbergia (which has much larger flowers) do pretty well here.

Thats good to know my Gardenia is slowly dying in the house .

8 Jan, 2018


Yikes! Gardenias in the house are very, very difficult. All Gardenia species need some full sun to grow well.

If I placed it out side would it survive our winters.

13 Jan, 2018


It's highly unlikely this Gardenia would survive outdoors there. Sorry! :>((

No I doubt it would Andy I ve put mine out side now having to take a chance it either survives or dies.

I do know some varieties of Gardenia jasminoides are very hardy.
