Gardenia jasminoides, commonly known as gardenia and cape jasmine, is an evergreen flowering plant in the coffee family Rubiaceae. It is native to parts of South-East Asia. Wild plants range from 30cm to 3m in height. They have a rounded habit with very dense branches with opposite leaves that are lanceolate-oblong, leathery or gathered in groups on the same node and by a dark green, shiny and slightly waxy surface and prominent veins.

The variety 'August Beauty' has highly fragrant, velvety, double white flowers with glossy, lance-shaped, deep green foliage with a bushy, rounded habit. Flowering throughout Spring and Summer. Great for hedging, containers, borders, gardens, cut flowers and corsages. Height to 1.5m and width to 90cm. Remove faded flowers to encourage further flowering and prune after flowering to shape.
