The Gardenia genus was named for Scottish physician and naturalist Alexander Garden (1730-1791) who emigrated from England in 1755. Garden was sending plants and animal specimens to Irish-born linen merchant, trader and naturalist John Ellis (1710–1776). The Chinese plant reached Garden in Charles Towne in the Carolinas in 1761 or 1762. J. Ellis recommended the genus name “Gardenia” to Carl Linnaeus.

Trademarked Fool Proof gardenia has its main flush of spring flowers in May just as the Diamond Spires gardenia variety is finishing its spring flower season. Both varieties rebloom through to the fall. Fool Proof is a small evergreen shrub maturing at 3 to 4 feet tall and 3 feet in diameter. Foliage is dense and form is compact. Leaves are soft, shiny, bright medium green and opposite on the stems. The fragrant flowers are double form with whorls of pure white petals that fade to cream then yellow. Fool Proof gardenia is called ‘Leesix’ on the plant patent applied for (PPAF) by its Alabama plant breeder.

There are about 140 species of Gardenia flowering shrubs in the Rubiaceae family. None evolved in the Americas. The most popular, very fragrant, ornamental species is Gardenia jasminoides, originally from China. Because it was brought to Britain by ship in 1744 from South Africa and its fragrance resembles that of jasmine, this gardenia got the misleading common name cape jasmine.

The dense evergreen foliage on Diamond Spires gardenia is shiny with a waxy look. This upright evergreen plant grows 3 to 4 feet tall with a diameter of about 2 feet. The bright white flowers contrast with the lush leaves. The main bloom period is in spring, April to May in Jane’s Garden. However, Diamond Spires has been bred to rebloom in summer and fall.

Diamond Spires gardenia flowers in spring from April into May. Buds are creamy yellow and open into double white very fragrant flowers. Older flowers fade to yellow and quickly fall off. Seeds rarely develop on hybrid plants. This named variety repeat blooms through to the fall It needs acidic, humus-rich soil that retains moisture but is well drained not soggy. Although claimed to tolerate full sun of six hours a day, some afternoon shade is beneficial in Florida’s hot summer sunshine in Central Florida.

Fragrant white Gardenia jasminoides cultivated varieties have a perfume reminiscent of jasmine flowers. About 140 species of gardenias are tropical and subtropical plants originally from Asia, Africa, Madagascar, Australia and some Pacific islands. None evolved in the Americas.
