This gorgeous gardenia boasts double petaled ivory and white blossoms with glossy, evergreen foliage and makes for wonderful freshly cut arrangements. Place the Gardenia ‘Double Mint’ under a window or in a container on a porch to enjoy the heavenly scent in your home. This tight, evergreen shrub reaches approximately three feet in height and width. Plant this beauty in partial shade to full sun with well-drained soil. Remove darkened blossoms to promote new buds, and prune after the bush is finished flowering in the late fall. The bush is hardy and will bring enjoyment and beauty for years with proper care. It doesn’t like competition from tree roots or other larger shrubs, and it does best in smaller landscaping areas or containers.
