Chlorine at normal levels will not hurt most plants. I think the plants you mentioned are fine provide you give them growing conditions that each prefers (sun or in the case of gardenias partial shade) and well drained soil to prevent soggy conditions. For wet areas you might try canna, sedge or 'Ruby Slippers' cardinal flower in sun, or Louisiana iris and ferns in shade.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
