Gardenia Jasminoides

Gardenia is a genus of about 250 species of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae, native to the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, southern Asia, Australasia and Oceania. Gardenia Jasminoides, a common gardenia that has delightfully and strongly fragrant flowers, grows in Vietnam, Southern China, Taiwan and Japan. Of course, this is in Miami, and this plant flowers late May, every year, as sure as the sun rises every morning.

Delightful Fragrance
