You can request
a “Hold Order” for Hardy Perennials and we will ship them
when it’s planting time in your zone. Otherwise, Hardy
Perennials can be kept in a cool or cold spot like an unheated
garage, cool cellar or outbuilding. Cover the pot and soil
with insulating material (burlap, clean rags, newspaper) and
check the soil every 2-3 weeks to make sure it doesn’t dry
out completely. In the spring, plant as soon as the ground
is open and no longer frozen. Dormant plants can endure
freezing temperatures in the spring as long as the plant
remains dormant without any green buds.
Gardenia ‘Belmont’ (Gardenia jasminoides)
More alluring than your best bottled perfume, these flowers emit an intoxicating heady aroma. A rare, vintage, estate variety, ‘Belmont’ produces huge, rose-like, creamy blooms in full to partial sun. Blooming heaviest in late winter and early spring, we often find flowers on it right through the fall.
Hardy to Zone 8 and higher for outdoors.
Full or partial sun, grows to 1-3’ in container,
minimum temperature 60°, intermittent bloomer.
