This new re-blooming double gardenia has tennis ball size flowers with the gardenia fragrance we all know and love. Sweet Tea™ is more upright and larger than Double Mint and is more winter hardy. Being tested for Zone 6 hardiness, and survived 4-6*F in 2013-2014 in an above ground container with no injury. That's saying something since many other gardenias suffered severe damage during the same winter.
