Gardenia Gummifera, a member of the Rubiaceae family, is native to tropical and subtropical regions.
Its glossy evergreen leaves and waxy, aromatic flowers make it a popular choice among gardeners.
The Gummy Cape Jasmine typically grows to a height of 2-3 feet, showcasing shiny, dark green leaves and fragrant, creamy-white flowers resembling pinwheels.
The blossoms stand out beautifully against the plant’s deep green foliage, exuding a sweet, floral scent.
Plant Gardenia Gummifera in well-draining, acidic soil rich in organic matter. A pH range of 5.0 to 6.0 is ideal for optimal growth.
These plants thrive in partial shade, receiving at least 4-6 hours of indirect sunlight per day. Avoid direct, intense sunlight, which may scorch the leaves.
Maintain consistent moisture, but avoid waterlogged soil. Water deeply when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch, especially during the growing season.

Gummy Cape Jasmine prefers a warm climate with temperatures between 60-70°F (15-21°C) and moderate humidity levels.
Planting and Propagation
To plant Gardenia Gummifera, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball and place the plant in, ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Propagation can be done through stem cuttings in spring or early summer.
Pruning and Maintenance
Regular pruning helps maintain a compact shape and encourages new growth. Remove spent flowers and dead or yellowing leaves to promote a healthier plant.
