Can I grow Sweet Star Gardenia in Long Island?

You might check with your local garden center for their recommendation for Long Island.

Sweet Tea Gardenia is cold tolerant down to 4-6 ° F. I would probably give it a little afternoon shade. Put it in a spot with good air circulation. Gardenias do best in acidic soil. And, watch the amount of moisture it gets – gardenias like consistent moisture but avoid soggy roots.
