Genus of gardenia

Gardenias have been cultivated in Chinese gardens for well over a thousand years, but Europeans and Americans have known of them for only a few hundred years.

Order: Gentianales
Family: Rubiaceae
Subfamily: Ixoroideae
Tribe: Gardenieae
Genus: Gardenia

Gardenia jasminoides
The flowers are a beautiful ivory color, and that combined with their scent, made the bush a favorite around the world.

Gardenias grow large, lovely, creamy-white flowers shaped like many-petaled roses. The flowers and foliage are somewhat waxy, and the leaves are a glossy dark green.

The scent of one flower can be so powerful that it perfumes an entire room. In the South the gardenia is one of the all-time favorite evergreen shrubs.
