Double Mint Gardenia is a great name for these perky, 2" diameter, abundant flowers. It is our best reblooming gardenia, to the point of continuous bloom through summer.
Heavenly-scented flowers adorn a slightly smaller stature that's perfect for smaller spaces and containers.
To compare with Sweet Tea, this one is a better rebloomer and is a smaller plant, but less cold hardy. Also, its flowers have more petals so they are fully double.
Double Mint Gardenia is one of two First Editions® Gardenias that we grow.

To Make It Thrive
Shelter gardenias from cold and work organic matter into the soil because they like it rich.
It's March and the new growth is damaged, what happened? Damage to new growth from early spring frosts is called "burning." To prevent frost nipping the new growth, folks throw old sheets, blankets, or burlap over their gardenias when they notice new growth and the thermometer dropping below 32 degrees. Likely only the new growth will get nipped and the plant will grow back just fine and you'll never even notice something happened.
