Abstract

A new and distinct variety of Gardenia jasminoides called ‘BAB1183’ is shown and described. The plant is produces large, double flowers and is cold hardy.

Description

Genus and species name: The present invention relates to a new and distinct gardenia variety of Gardenia jasminoides.
Variety denomination: This new and distinct Gardenia variety is identified as ‘BAB1183’.
BACKGROUND
Gardenia plants are native to various tropical and subtropical regions around the planet. Because of their tropical and subtropical origins, Gardenia plants tend to thrive in warm humid environments such as USDA Zones 8 or 9. Gardenia plants are not typically recommended for zones colder than zone 7. Others have attempted to develop more cold hardy Gardenia plants. Gardenia jasminoides ‘Frostproof’ is one such example. ‘August Beauty’ is another example of a commercially available Gardenia with some cold hardiness. The ‘BAB1183’ is distinguishable from known Gardenia by, at least, its large flowers. The ‘BAB1183’ may also be distinguishable for any of the reasons below.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
This new and distinct Gardenia variety is identified as ‘BAB1183’, and has a compact, semi-dwarf habit with very large, double, fragrant flowers and large, evergreen foliage. The ‘BAB1183’ is hardy in USDA Zones 6-10; exhibits extreme hardiness to 0° F. or colder; and is extremely drought tolerant and pest resistant. The ‘BAB1183’ is also strong and fast growing, reaching a mature height of 4 to 5 feet in approximately 15 years.
The ‘BAB1183’ is distinguished from all other varieties of Gardenia known to the inventor by at least one of its cold hardiness; large bloom; compact, semi-dwarf habit; and glossy leaves. The ‘BAB1183’ may also be distinguishable for other reasons as well.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE PLANT
Origin: In approximately 1993, the Inventor obtained vegetative cuttings from what the inventor believes to be a hybrid plant of unknown parentage in a cultivated sandy garden in Dania, Fla., located in Broward County, USDA Zone 10. Cuttings were grown and plants were selected for sturdiness for approximately 14 seasons in USDA Zone 7 (Guilford County, North Carolina) in an outdoor area. Plants exhibiting high levels of sturdiness in USDA Zone 7 were selected for outdoor growth in USDA Zone 6. After selection following approximately 2 growing seasons in USDA Zone 6, the inventor discovered the unique characteristics of the ‘BAB1183’.
Asexual Reproduction: The ‘BAB1183’ has been asexually reproduced using vegetative cuttings by the inventor in Guilford County, NC. The ‘BAB1183’ has also been asexually reproduced, for the inventor, through micropropagation. Asexual production of the ‘BAB1183’, by the inventor, has shown that the unique features of this Gardenia are stable and the plant reproduces true to type in successive generations of asexual propagation.
A detailed description of the Gardenia jasminoides ‘BAB1183’ follows. All measurements were taken from a representative two year old plant grown outdoors in Guilford Co., North Carolina. (USDA Zone 7). The Inflorescence description is based on a flower opened for approximately 2 days in the month of June. Colors are based on The Royal Horticultural Colour Chart. When dimensions, sizes, colors, etc. are given, it should be understood that such characteristics are approximations set forth as accurately as possible. Variations may occur under other growth conditions based on, for example, climatic factors, fertilization, pruning, pest control, etc.
