Tough, hardy, and lovely gardenia for USDA zone 7, down to 0 °F, really! Wonderfully fragrant, double white flowers in June and July, and occasionally in autumn when temperatures cool down. Compact evergreen shrub, to 3', blooms in full to half sun with normal garden water. Developed by the late Chuck Hayes and Dan Milbocker at the Virginia Beach Research Station, VA.

Supposedly a bit more hardy than 'Kleim's Hardy' and 'Shooting Star' and with a double bloom. Be sure to plant it near your doorways so you can smell it as you pass. Utterly delicious. "The new variety is characterized by a resistance to cold, tolerance of warmer temperatures resulting in longer blooming periods, high floriferousness, and a compact, condensed appearance," per the patent license
Description by: Heritage Seedlings
Semi-double flowers, extremely fragrant, almost intoxicatingly so. Few plants rival a gardenia in bloom, whether in a pot or the garden. Well-behaved shrub to almost head-hign, but performs best in warm climates or against a rockwall for a heat sink at night.
