The Q&A Archives: Growth habits of Miniature gardenia

Question: I want to cover a small hill with your miniature gardenia, but I need to know how to space the rows. Will the plants trail more downhill rather than uphill? How would you suggest spacing the rows?


Sandra Long

Answer: These plants will spread out 2-3' in diameter so space them no closer than 2' for complete coverage. I'd plant them checkerboard style and expect that they will radiate out from the main stems. Best wishes with your plants!
