Development Story

The Swan Series of repeat-blooming gardenias was developed by our own in-house horticulturist, Brian Jernigan, and his wife, Maria. They were striving to maximize cold hardiness and disease resistance, while achieving a beautiful bloom, reliable reblooming, and a compact habit. 

Acid-loving evergreens

Acid-loving evergreens

Prefers moist, well-drained, acidic soil. When planting, condition the soil with plenty of organic matter. Mulch after planting to maintain moisture in the soil. The Swan Maiden™, Swan Princess™ Heaven Scent® and Pinwheel® Gardenia are perfect choices for container gardens. Rely on gardenias to offer evergreen structure, enhanced by fragrant summer blooms. By combining with annuals and perennials, their repeat blooming habits and glossy evergreen foliage add year round interest to your patio or garden. Remember to place them where you will enjoy the wonderful fragrance.
