Today, we are in position to offer the first patio gardenia for Mediterranean countries: Joy. Only available in Kalantzis Plants, a great addition for direct plantations in the ground, Joy is a variety that flowers in summer and her strong and sweet fragrance covers everything around. Variety Joy is part of our range but variety magnifica still dominates out production! Year around availability and different sizes and shapes are part of our business from the first day of our establishment. Gardenia can give a lovely fragrant of creamy-white flower for many months in a row. Offered with dark green shiny leaves in small bush shape or higher stems, these plants dominate any area they decorate!
Find a lovely sunny, bright spot that you visit regularly and spend time of your day. Be careful, gardenia magnifica loves lot of sunlight but not direct sunlight, while variety Joy can be easily placed under the sun! In case you notice that buds drop or don’t open this may be a sign of low light intensity or watering irregularities.
Make sure the soil doesn’t dry out but is also not full of water all the time. Originally, Gardenia comes from southern Asia, found in more tropical conditions than those met in Europe. It will always love some water spray on her leaves in warm-dry days and her roots in moist soil. Remove old flowers when they get yellow or brown and also the dead leaves from the inside of the plant. In the end of the flowering season you can prune the plants to maintain the desirable shape.
