This is the best gardenia I've ever had. It was trained to grow like a small tree, supported by a stake. It's 5 foot tall and I just bought it. Has HUGE double flowers as big as the palm of my hand. There are only 2 blooms on it right now but it fills up an entire room with its strong familiar gardenia scent. I love it!!
