Notes for Identification: Vietnam gardenia (gardenia jasminoides) is a medium to large shrub, or sometimes, small tree, frequently bushy, with glossy, deep green leaves to 4" or more long. Source: floridatacare: requires acid soil, ideally moist and high in organic matter, but well drained. There are few shrubs so perfect in their properties as the gardenia, but there is a downside: they are susceptible to a host of pests, primarily sucking insects. Gardenias are frequently seen in a cloud of whiteflies, who are laying eggs that will become little sucking larvae. Residue from these will provide a medium for sooty mold to grow, giving the foliage a dull, splotchy black appearance. Scale insects are the second most common problem. Fortunately, gardenias primary pests are easily controlled with environmentally safe soap and oil sprays. Protect in case of severe freezes. As a specimen shrub, freestanding where its shape and beauty can be appreciated (and good air circulation can help keep pests down).
