Frost Proof gardenia is a great plant for home gardens and deserves more consideration.

A Louisiana Super Plant selection, Frostproof is widely used by landscape professionals. It’s an improvement over other, older gardenia varieties. It reaches a mature height of 5 feet with a spread of 4-5 feet.

A low-maintenance, good-performing gardenia, Frostproof has the fragrance of other gardenias. It begins blooming in early to mid-May and continues through early summer. This outstanding variety provides fast growth, site adaptability and suitability to poorer growing conditions, making it more desirable than many other varieties for Louisiana.
