Sweet Tea™ First Edition
This cross between Double Mint and Pinwheel™ produced a plant with the best features of both parents. With tennis ball sized double flowers and excellent cold hardiness this heavy rebloomer has elegant, densely scented ?owers. At 3-5’ tall and wide, Sweet Tea™ is more upright and larger than Double Mint. It is also more winter hardy. In 2013-2014 this selection survived 4-6°F in an above ground container with no injury. That’s saying something since many other gardenias suffered severe damage during the same winter. Bred by Plant Introductions, Inc.
