Gardenia 'Veitchii' is the oldest cultivar of Gardenia and yet it is still the most reliable bloomer of all the Gardenias. This glossy dark green leafed evergreen gets to about 4' high and 6' wide when mature and will bloom prolifically from late spring to the fall frosts. Blooms are double and resemble roses with an enchanting aroma. Great as an informal hedge or for against the house planting. Does best when givin a little afternoon shade.
