Gardenia augusta Radicans Low-Growing Plant Pack

Buy now, pay later with


Gardenia augusta Radicans is a much-treasured, evergreen, low growing shrub/ground cover. Its natural highly glossed, richly-bright green leaves are only surpassed by the exquisite, sweetly-perfumed flowers. With folds of soft, white petals that regularly and completely cover the plant, this little gem is a MUST for every garden. Whilst there is a dominance of bloom in Spring and Autumn, in the warmer climatic zones, Gardenia augusta Radicans produces flowers throughout the entire year. 

As it has shallow roots, Gardenia augusta Radicans is perfect for use in hanging baskets and also for pots/tubs. It is mainly used for planting as garden borders, at the base of trees, or taller shrubs, providing perfume and contrast. 

Try planting Gardenia augusta Radicans at the base of taller growing shrubs. The contrast in foliage, growth habit and flower production gives the designing edge to your garden!

This beauty loves sun to filtered sun and slightly acid soils, but if the leaves start to yellow it means the soil is deficient in minerals that gardenias need.

It’s a simple fix of applying Epsom salts or chelated iron onto the roots. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and those deep glossy green tones will soon return.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m a feature plant in the garden, cover bare soil beneath a tree, and make an attractive hanging basket. Wildlife adores my nectar and I’m evergreen for winter interest.
  • I grow to: I’ll reach 30-50cms tall and 40cms wide
  • Where to place me:  I like full sun to part shade.
  • How far to space me:  I need 40cms of growing space, please.
  • Soil Conditions:  I like moist, but well-drained slightly acidic soil.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door
