#4 Plant for a Hamptons garden in the subtropics
The GARDENIA radicans is a dwarf variety that requires little attention and keeps a small tight form in good sunlight. A great place to plant these is near an entrance or entertaining area so the intoxicating perfume of the white flowers can be fully enjoyed. The roselike flowers almost have a luminous quality in the morning light against its foliage.
Large glossy green leaves have a slight waxy shiny appearance, and looks great next to a taller clipped lily pilly hedge.
