Product Information

Gardenia jasminoides ‘Crown Jewel’ is a beautiful ornamental shrub with elegant evergreen foliage with long, slender green leaves edged in creamy yellow.

A compact Gardenia, ‘Crown Jewel’ blooms prolifically from July to September with stunning, exotic looking, large pure white double flowers that will fill your garden with delicious, jasmine-like fragrance that’s one of the most powerful and intoxicating scents around!

It is one of a new breed of hardier Gardenias, and so can be kept outside all winter, as long as it receives protection from the coldest weather, and as it keeps its beautiful leaves all year, it’s always a handsome plant, whatever the season. Due to its size it makes a wonderful specimen plant in a large patio pot and is stunning in borders too. Easy to care for, requiring little pruning apart from a trim each spring and the removal of dead stems.

‘Crown Jewel’ will appreciate being grown in dappled shade, without too much full sun in neutral or slightly acid soil that’s well drained, so incorporate ericaceous compost when planting. Remove faded flowers to encourage new buds and you’ll be rewarded with at least three months of fabulous fragrance and flowers.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant and reaching a height and spread of 1m (3ft).

Top Tips

  • Although Gardenia will grow in full sun, some shade is necessary during the hotter months of the year to prevent leaf scorch and bud drop.

Care Information

Planting your Gardenia jasminoides collection:

  • Choose a sheltered position, ideally in dappled or partial shade.
  • Plants prefer well-drained, fertile and slightly acidic soil or can be grown in a large container of ericaceous (acid) compost.
  • Before planting, water well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pots.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole along with some ericaceous compost if necessary.
  • Remove the plants from their pots and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plants in their holes at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the holes with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil avoiding the root ball of the plants.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of each plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Aftercare Advice for your Hardy Gardenias:

  • Feed your gardenias well throughout the growing season (spring and summer) with a nitrogen-rich fertiliser in summer to avoid yellowing of the leaves.
  • Water regularly until your plants are fully established - use rainwater where possible and keep the soil moist (but not saturated).
  • Over winter, although perfectly hardy, plants will benefit from some protection if it gets very cold. You can move container grown plants into a frost-free area or cover with good horticultural fleece.
  • Continue to feed plants with a balanced fertiliser over winter but reduce to once every 5-6 weeks. Reduce watering too, but do not allow the soil to fully dry out.

 

Pruning Advice for Gardenias:

  • Remove faded flowers to improve the appearance of your plants.
  • If necessary, trim lightly in early spring after flowering to help maintain a neat shape.
