I acquired this plant at a local plant swap a few months ago .. the tag on it said 'Goldfish'. I was unable to find anything related to gardenia with the name 'Goldfish' attached to it but someone was able to find a single but somewhat ambiguous reference to something called Gardenia 'Goldfish', but no picture.

It finally bloomed and I have been able to find two cultivars that look exactly like mine from the front, 'Chinese Single' and 'Daisy'. Unfortunately no side views of the flower. The side view is something I've never seen in a gardenia .. it's tubular!

There is a reference in our Plant Database for the 'Daisy'. But before I offer up pictures I want to make sure. Does anyone recognize this?

"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."
