Gardenia – Gold Magic
Gardenia augusta magnifica – ‘Gold Magic’
A wonderful shrub growing to 1.5m tall and 1.5m wide with deep green, glossy leaves. In late spring through summer it produces scented, double flowers that age from white to yellow.
It is prefect for mass planting, low hedges, specimen planting and growing in pots and containers. If grown in a pot it is able to be moved inside for a short time in order to enjoy the scented blooms.
It should be planted in well drained, fertile soils in a part shade position. It should be mulched thoughout the year, especially in summer and fertilised through the warmer months.
