Gardenia augusta Radicans variegata

Description

Gardenia Radicans Variegata is a much-treasured low growing spreading gardenia that every self-respecting garden should enjoy.

This is a repeat flowering gardenia with double white flowers that regularly and completely cover the plant throughout spring summer and autumn. In warmer climates, blooms can appear in winter too. Unusually for a gardenia, the foliage is variegated with cream and grey-green leaves.

Radicans Variegata has shallow roots so it makes a stunning hanging basket and suits shallow containers or a rockery. If you’re struggling to plant beneath a tree it will cover the bare soil with grace.

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 and make an attractive flowering hedge. Wildlife adores my nectar and I’m evergreen for winter interest.
  • I grow to: I’ll reach 30cms metres tall and 80cms metres wide.
  • Where to place me:  I like full sun to part shade.
  • How far to space me:  If you’re making a hedge I need 50cms metres otherwise 1.2 metres, 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.

Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
