The “more" gardenia -- more tough, more cold tolerant and sun tolerant, more adaptable, and said to be more deer resistant -- not to mention beautiful! Double white flowers are extremely fragrant and profuse, continuing over a long season beginning in spring. They can even take a bit of spring frost without dropping. Evergreen, to 2-3 ft tall and a bit wider, and happy in full sun to part sun with summer water where dry. Definitely frost hardy in USDA zone 8 and expected well into the upper reaches of zone 7.

Info

'Frostproof' is a prolific bloomer of fragrant 2-3" flowers. This new cultivar has a distinctive cup in the middle of the blossom, and the blooming season lasts from spring to fall. The plant has a nice symmetrical upright form with very attractive narrow green foliage that's about half the size of standard gardenia leaves. It can be maintained at a compact 12-14" tall in a pot, but grows to about 3' tall outdoors. It requires moist, somewhat acidic, soil and full to partial sun. As the name implies, it's more tolerant of early frosts. Hardy to zone 6 with protection.
