The Q&A Archives: gardenia veitchii

Question: Just a few questions if I may...
-is a gardenia veitchii an annual, perennial, shrub, etc.???
-can it be planted in the ground? We live in GA
-do we pinch back after blooming?
Thank you in advance!

Answer: Gardenia jasminoides Veitchii is a perennial shrub in frost free areas. I'd keep it in a container and enjoy it in a protected spot outdoors during the summer months and indoors the rest of the year. Pinch off the faded flowers to encourage new flowers, give it bright light but not direct sunshine and keep the soil moist. If it is too dry, the leaves will turn yellow and drop. Enjoy the wonderful fragrance!
