Gardenia jasminoides "Summer Snow" is a new (2012) gardenia bred by Buds and Blooms Nurseries, selected for its exceptional cold hardiness. This plant was specifically chosen for its hardiness to temperatures of 0 F or lower, its rapid growth, its large leaves, and its large fragrant blooms, which are double.

Please note: other gardenia varieties have also been labeled cold hardy (Kleim's Hardy and Shooting Star) and still require considerable protection below zone 7. With any potentially-tender plant, some winter protection might be considered, either by siting the plant closer to a foundation, or protecting it from harsh winds by a fence.

At the lower edge of its range, in the colder zone 6a, burying the plant in leaf mulch or a placing it under a rose cone over the winter can help protect it from severe damage.
