you are purchasing a potted plant 45 cm tall.

Serious collector's plant! You won't find it anywhere else for sale in Australia.

Gardenia imperialis is rarely seen in cultivation and we have very limited numbers. It grows into a large shrub or can be shaped into a small tree. Perfect for a feature tree in tropical backyards with limited space. The leaves are large, deep green with attractive viens. The flowers are stunning large funnels with a long neck and creamy color.

Several growers have it growing as far south as Brisbane but I'm not sure how far down the coast it will grow. It's natural habitat is along streams so it likes a bit of water.


Growing Conditions rich moist soil, full sun to part shade
Flowering Season year round sporadic flowering
Max Size 8 m
Origin Tropical Africa
