The Gardenia Jasminiodes (Dutch name: Cape Jasmine) is originally from southern Asia. At good care, a Gardenia can give a lovely fragrant of creamy white rose-like flowers for months in a row. These flowers provide your living room in a natural way of a jasmine-like scent every day. The dark-green shiny leaves ensure that the plant is also very decorative at the time that there is no open flower in the plant. Because the flowers are beautiful creamy white and have a lovely fragrant, they were formerly often used as buttonhole flowers.
The Gardenia can in the warmer period be placed well outside on the terrace or balcony, but would like to overwinter inside, because of its tropical origin.
The Gardenia Jasminoides can be bought the whole year.
