August Beauty Gardenia

Gardenia jasminoides 'August Beauty'

2-3" double white, wonderfully fragrant blooms are borne for an exceptionally long period on this hardy evergreen shrub. Rich deep green foliage on a dense plant. One of the favorites among the larger growing Gardenia varieties in southern regions.

These old garden favorites are still commonly referred to as Cape Jasmine or Cape Jessamine in many southern gardens but no matter what you call them the fragrance is unforgettable.

Gardenias perform best in a fertile, well-drained, humus rich, acidic soil with average moisture. They seem to do best in hot southern regions where they get some midday or afternoon shade but need good light for the best flower production. Provide your Gardenias with good air circulation to minimize pest infestations. In the northern most reaches of their range they will benefit from protection from cold winter winds. Gardenias make good container plants and can be enjoyed indoors where not winter hardy. Prune after flowering.

Black Jack Fig, California Brown Turkey Fig, Black Spanish Fig
Large to very large dark purplish fruit with amber to strawberry colored flesh with good flavor is produced on a small spreading tree. Its smaller stature makes Black Jack a good choice for containers or in the ground. One limiting factor with Black Jack is that it is a Calmyrna fig and so it needs pollination by the wasps that are generally only found on the west coast. Item# 940.
