Unlike the old-time finicky Gardenias, this new and improved variety 'Frostproof lives up to its name by keeping its blooms through any unexpected late spring freezes. Wonderfully fragrant creamy-white flowers arrive each year in summer, blooms again sporadically throughout the growing season. Wise gardeners always plant this beauty near their outdoor living area to enjoy the sweetly fragrant flower scent that wafts throughout the Southern garden. Its lustrous, glossy, dark green foliage remains all year and the plant has a compact tidy appearance, growing just 3 ft. T to 5 ft. W, which makes it a great choice to hide walls, line fences or along walkways.
