Gardenia jasminoides is a shrubby plant from the Rubiaceae family, originally from East Asia. It is especially appreciated for its white flowers, extremely fragrant, which have a shape similar to that of roses. The flowers can be of different sizes, but in general they are large and full, with multiple layers of delicate petals.
The leaves are usually dark green, glossy and have an oval or elongated shape. The shrub can grow up to a height of 1-3 meters, depending on the growing conditions and the variety.
Gardenia jasminoides prefers an acidic soil, well drained and rich in organic matter. It is a light-loving plant, but prefers to be protected from direct midday sun.
Watering should be done in moderation, keeping the soil slightly moist. Gardenias are also sensitive to water quality; hard or chlorinated water can affect the plant's development. Periodic fertilization with an acidifying fertilizer can help maintain the color of the leaves and stimulate flowering.
Gardenia jasminoides is often used in perfumery and skin care products due to the highly fragrant essential oil extracted from the flowers.
Symbolically, gardenia is often associated with purity, love and grace, making it a popular choice for wedding bouquets and other special events.
