Here is another unusual plant from Countryside Gardens. I’ve had one for 12 years in my home garden. Gardenia jasminoides ‘Variegata’ ‘Variegated’ Gardenia Flower: White single very fragrant flowers in early summer. Some residual flowers until frost. Less flowers on the variegated varieties than the green ones, but the foliage more than makes up for it.
Size: 4-6 feet in height and 3-4 feet in width. Upright compact growth habit.
Foliage: This evergreen flowering shrub has beautiful glossy variegated foliage. Will typically loose some foliage before flowering. Very nice foundation accent plant.
Hardiness Zones: 7-10. Keep away from the winter wind in zone 7. The longer it is in your garden the hardier it becomes.
