Genus Description Gardenia ‘Crown Jewel’ was selected from a controlled cross of 'Kleim's Hardy' and 'Chuck Hayes' Gardenias. It possesses many of the desirable traits of its parents: double bloom and cold hardiness of ‘Chuck Hayes’ and heavy bloom set of ‘Kleim’s Hardy'. It also has a dwarf spreading habit, double fragrant blooms and a soft texture but with much more cold hardiness. Gardenia ‘Crown Jewel’ also has a heavy bloom set, often later than most gardenias. This extremely compact and cold-hardy Gardenia is the essence of timeless beauty.
Care Tips
Cultivation Provide organic soil amendment and good drainage. Requires little pruning. Light pruning after bloom set will stimulate more blossoms. Blooms on old and new wood, so late frosts will not take away all blooms.
