Think growing gardenias is out of reach? You may want to give this compact gardenia a try. Unlike most gardenia cultivars, Grif's Select is reported to be winter hardy to zone 6 with some protection. Plant near an entrance to your home or a patio and enjoy its 3" white, daisy-like flowers and intense fragrance. The flowers look stunning against the glossy, dark green, evergreen foliage, and showy red seed capsules, or hips, add to its attractiveness. An introduction from the late J.C. Raulston of North Carolina State University, Grif's Select is noted for its compact form, small leaves and winter hardiness. It prefers neutral to acidic soil. Most gardenia cultivars are winter hardy to zones 7 or 8. It was reportedly developed from seed obtained by Michael Dirr from the Beijing Botanic Garden. Gardenia 'Grif's Select'
