Hardy enough, as the name suggests, but still best to keep in a pot just in case! Gorgeous glossy dark evergreen foliage, nice enough in itself, but Gardenia Kleim's Hardy comes into own when, through the summer months, the intensely fragrant, starry, pure white flowers appear. A wondrous thing. Partial shade. Neutral to acid soil. 3 feet. 1 litre pot.

Flowers profusely, even on a small plant, so it does make an ideal subject as a pot plant.
Gardenia are greedy plants, so feed them regularly through the growing season. If you see yellowing of the foliage, that's a good sign they need something to boost their vitality. Vitax Q4 seems to work for us, as it does for pretty much any other plant.
A short but sweet video showing how prolific the flowers can be on Gardenia Kleim's Hardy:
Gardenia Kleim’s Hardy is a fairly hardy compact evergreen shrub with highly scented white flowers throughout the summer suitable for light shade.
