Hi, just sending along a picture of Frostproof gardenia which we have had for three years, and is really coming along. Love to go outside where this one is planted and sniff the wonderful fragrance. Do any of you grow the Kleim gardenia? I would like to get one of those if it is the single that is supposed to bloom all summer.

Just admiring your gardenia! I don't have any but I've tried MANY times to grow it, unsuccessfully,it's the summer heat that usually gets them!

Is the name Frostproof?
