Incredible number of flowers every spring – more blooms per branch than any other variety and the flowers are semi-double (more petals)!
Includes one pot of 'Buttons' Gardenia.
This is the most prolific gardenia we have ever seen! Selected just for our gardeners, 'Buttons' begins blooming in late spring and blooms sporadically until fall! Due to its compact size, 'Buttons' is the perfect patio plant, but it's also great in the garden. A genetic dwarf, it reaches a mature size of 30-inches tall and 30-inches wide. Its petite size makes it easy to move indoors and out so you can grow it no matter where you live. Easily overwinters indoors in cold areas so you can enjoy it year-round.
Pollinator friendly blossoms attract butterflies and hummingbirds. There's no fragrance more intoxicating than that of a blooming gardenia. The aroma is unlike any other with an irresistible combination of sweet, floral and earthy tones. The enchanting fragrance will perfume an entire room and greet your guests with a delightful, welcoming scent. You can even float fresh gardenias in a bowl of water for a gorgeous centerpiece that perfumes your home. 'Buttons' is a powerhouse when it comes to blooming and fragrance!
Gardenia was discovered in 1754 by an English sea captain named Hutcheson, on a stopover in South Africa. According to author Diana Wells, Hutcheson was walking on the shore and caught a whiff of a sweetly scented gardenia in full flower. When he returned to England, the gardenia went with him.
