Sweet Tea™ Gardenia

Gardenia jasminoides 'PIIGA-II' PP27258

This new reblooming double gardenia has tennis ball size flowers with the gardenia fragrance we all know and love. Sweet Tea™ is more upright and larger than Double Mint and is more winter hardy. It survived 4-6°F in 2013-2014 in an above ground container with no injury and is currently being tested for Zone 6 hardiness. That's saying something since many other gardenias suffered severe damage during the same winter.
