Frost Proof is by far our most purchased gardenia. You can never have too many Frost Proof around!  

Frost Proof Gardenia is a great choice for cooler climates. The foliage and flower buds of this relatively new selection of gardenia will not get damaged by late frost in spring. Fragrant as expected, Frost Proof holds it on to all in the world of great smelling plants. Hardy to zone 7 this plant will keep the anticipation of heavy flowers and sweet perfume in your mind as you shake off the winter blues. The rich green foliage holds up in the garden as a foundation planting or a mass border that invites to seek out the senses when in bloom.

Frost Proof is deer resistant, so that’s one less plant to worry about when making a choice for the garden.

Pruning of gardenia after the blooms finally fade is a good practice to encourage fuller growth and maybe a second wave of flowers in some cases.
