Gardenias
Van Chaplin and Joseph De Sciose

Potted Pleasures

Though they can be used as specimens or hedges, a benefit of keeping gardenias in pots is that you can move them around to better enjoy their perfume. 'August Beauty', shown here, blooms into the fall and nicely complements pink French hydrangeas. Let potted gardenias grow naturally or clip and train them as topiary standards. Ideal locations for gardenia container gardens include along pathways, at the corners of your house, or near windows, where their scent is drawn inside by summer breezes.

DID YOU KNOW? Radicans' gardenia's small leaves and size make it an ideal plant to train as a bonsai.
