Will Gardenias grow in the shade?


By Bonnie

I have a beautiful trailing gardenia, which seems to be very hardy....It is planted in a pot that gets about 4 hours of sun a day....I would like to transplant it to a larger pot on the property, but it will get only about 2 hours of suntilght a day. Do Gardenias adapt to a shadier place in the garden??

On plant Gardenia



My book says they should be grown in light or dappled shade - so I hope it does well in its new position.
