Product Overview

Gardenia jasminoides 'Mystery Variegated'
An exceptional Gardenia variety that produces upright bushy shrub of striking green and creamy-white varigated foliage crowned with fragrant white blooms in summer; a garden or landscape accent with year-round appeal

Mystery Variegated Gardenia is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting bees and butterflies to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Mystery Variegated Gardenia is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Accent
  • Mass Planting
  • General Garden Use
  • Container Planting

Features

Mystery Variegated Gardenia features showy fragrant white flowers at the ends of the branches from late spring to early summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has creamy white-variegated dark green foliage with hints of grayish green. The glossy pointy leaves remain dark green throughout the winter. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Planting & Growing

Mystery Variegated Gardenia will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. It has a low canopy, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil pH, but grows best in rich soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.

Mystery Variegated Gardenia makes a fine choice for the outdoor landscape, but it is also well-suited for use in outdoor pots and containers. With its upright habit of growth, it is best suited for use as a 'thriller' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination; plant it near the center of the pot, surrounded by smaller plants and those that spill over the edges. It is even sizeable enough that it can be grown alone in a suitable container. Note that when grown in a container, it may not perform exactly as indicated on the tag - this is to be expected. Also note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
