Our plants allow you to enjoy large blooms in the first year or so. All the Gardenias we offer are vegetatively propagated from healthy, vigorous, flowering mother stock, grown right here in our nursery. This means, you receive an exact clone, true in form and won’t have to wait four to five years to enjoy the beautiful blooms, as is often the case with seed grown or tissue culture plants. Truly a better bloom!
The growth rate, bloom quantity, color and size of Everblooming Veitchii will vary greatly depending on soil type, sunlight, temperature and other factors. A few leaves are often trimmed prior to shipping to reduce transpiration and travel stress.
When you receive your new Gardenia, there is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new plant can be stored for a while by simply placing it in a bucket with about a half inch of water and moving it to a shady location, simply keep moist. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your new Gardenia.
