Gardenia radicans – O So Fine
Gardenia radicans – ‘O So Fine’
A lovely ground cover growing to just 30cm tall and 1m wide with fine, green leaves. It produces a huge amount of white, scented flowers in spring with the occasional spot flowering in summer.
It is a lovely ground cover in cottage and shaded gardens. It also makes a lovely potted specimen especially if grown where the scented flowers can be appreciated.
It should be grown in a part shade position protected from the hot afternoon sun in moist well drained soils. It should be pruned to shape and fertilised with a slow release fertiliser in spring.
