Great patio container gardenia

I ordered two of these gardenias in early spring. They arrived just as the weather was warming up in our zone 7a coastal New England town. I have it on a west facing outdoor deck where it gets south and west light. Both gardenias have been producing two to three fragrant blooms every week or so. I've given them some acid-loving fertilizer and I water when the soil starts to dry out. I will bring it indoors for south facing windows in the winter. I grew up in CA where we always had gardenias outdoors. I didn't think I could grow them in New England, so I'm crossing fingers I can over-winter these. Last year, I maintained a Meyer lemon tree and hibiscus with plenty of south facing sun--both are thriving. Will update next spring re: gardenias.
love it

This is a gorgeous little gardenia and mine arrived with buds and busted out some flowers in the first two weeks in my zone 10b garden! They say gardenias are impossible, but this one seems to do it's thing without any fuss.
