Gardenia Blooms Don’t Last

Anonymous added on March 27, 2011 | Answered

The blooms are actually coming in! They are wonderful. I also spray for bugs and I'm wondering if it yellows the blooms early. Also, the leaves at the bottom are yellow. Too much water? Last week the plant (in a container in sun half of the day) was drooping, so I watered. We had tremendous rain this winter and now it's heading toward a hot season in California. Do the leaves yellow and die off in spring?
