Gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides)

Another one that is not doing too well..... my husband says that it looks like its shedding its leaves ... if it does survive, I think it will be beautiful
fragrant creamy-white flowers and glossy, dark-green leaves
excellent choice for fragrant flowers and handsome foliage. If you want to enjoy the flowers' fragrance, plant in areas with good air circulation near patios or windows where the fragrance will be noticed. Many bloom in the spring
Plant gardenias in full sun, partial shade, or shifting shade for best flower production. Prolonged shade may reduce flowering

Pruning should be done just after the plant finishes blooming. Pruning after October 1st decreases next year's blooms. Pruning should be early enough to allow new growth to be at least 4 to 6 inches long by approximately October 1. Young plants, growing vigorously during their first year, may be pinched once in June and again in August to encourage heavy branching.
