Gardenia jasminoides, commonly known as gardenia and cape jasmine, is an evergreen flowering plant in the coffee family Rubiaceae. It is native to parts of South-East Asia. Wild plants range from 30cm to 3m in height. They have a rounded habit with very dense branches with opposite leaves that are lanceolate-oblong, leathery or gathered in groups on the same node and by a dark green, shiny and slightly waxy surface and prominent veins.

Gardenia jasminoides 'Veitchii' is regarded as the most reliable blooming Gardenia. A medium-sized evergreen shrub with small, shiny, lance-shaped, dark green leaves and sweetly fragrant, pure white, roselike flowers, 5-8 cm across. Blooming heavily from spring to fall, and potentially during a warm winter, this everblooming Gardenia makes a splendid specimen and a wonderful container plant. Excellent cut flowers. To be placed near doorways and on patios, where its fragrance can be enjoyed. This evergreen shrub has a compact, dense, upright habit and grows up to 1.2m tall and 90cm wide.
