Now I am not sure what it is? It is a lovely plant, the flowers are fragrant. It is either a Jasmine or Jasminoide something. HELP! I have identified all the others but this one and I have started to go through all my photos to see if one matches this one and hopefully it has a name on the photo if I have one.

Jay, I hate to tell you but I think you are wrong. The leaves on this plant, if you look really close are very different than the Gardenia Jasminoides. They are deep green and shiny, These are pale green and not at all shiny. Good guess but I am afraid I must disagree. Please don't stop trying and don't be mad at me for disagreeing. I propagated so many gardenia jasminoides I Green Grin! Green Grin! I can guarantee you it ain't one. Shrug!

After looking closer at the leaves I would say you are probably correct. The leaves and flower to me look like gardenia and you said Jasmine or Jasminoide so that's where I went. The leaves look like it could be Gardenia jasminoides 'Radicans', the light color could be the growing conditions.

It is not a radican. they are in the greenhouse and this one I purchased from Logee's and has never been in the greenhouse. The two have similiar leaves, that you are correct, but I have no receipts of purchasing a radican....I wonder what is close match to a radican? I feel we are getting closer. Lovey dubby

I thought I had it last night also. I thought frostproof was it but it is not. August Beauty leaves look close to it but today I will take a picture of the plant leaves that may help you. I also thought it could have been the Diamonds Delight , a hybrid gardenia Logee's friend propagated. But that does not have the right leaves nor does the flower have enough petals. It is more a flat flower than the two layered gardenia flower. This is beginning to get me angry now. I am going to look on plant scout to see if by chance I listed it there. I doubt it because I could never propagate it. I will be back later.

Ginger, I sent this shot (taken with camera is better) and one of the flower to Logee's on facebook.
Thanks for the suggestion. Brain dead me never thought of that. Rolling on the floor laughing
