Gardenia jasminoides or Cape Jasmine كيب ياسمين
This is a gorgeous plant, which although it can be quite challenging will reward you with the most highly scented, exquisite flowers. The perfume from these plants is intoxicating, filling the surrounding area with fragrance. The perfectly formed rose like ‘waxy’ white flowers, which are often used in bridal bouquets, are supported by rich green glossy leaves to form a beautifully rounded plant.
Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a Default plastic pot). And if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.
There are a few golden rules to follow when growing this plant, an even temperature, good light and careful watering. Keep the compost moist but not saturated using soft wate. Because they like humidity you could sit it on a tray of damp pebbles and mist the leaves, but don’t mist the leaves when it is in flower.
