Gardenia jasminoides 'August Beauty'

August Beauty Gardenia is a prolific bloomer in late spring and early summer. Fragrant flowers with velvety, snow white petals stand out against emerald green foliage. This rounded evergreen shrub makes a superb accent plant in the garden as well as an attractive low hedge or container plant. It likes slightly acidic soil and can be grown in full to partial sun, however too much shade will result in fewer flowers. Soil should be consistently moist but well drained. Flowers are highly fragrant and are a popular choice for corsages and wedding flowers. The showy double blooms can also be floated in a bowl of water for an elegant table centerpiece.
