Gardenia, Gardenia jasminoides
Gardenias may be grown as a shrub or a small tree.  To keep a quality Gardenia the soil should be acidic and moist.  Regular fertilizing including micronutrients, especially iron is a good idea with this plant.

Gardenias are sought after for the rose like white blooms that emit a strong perfume.
