Those are definitely not gardenia! They look more like four o'clocks to me. Four o'Clocks (Mirabilis jalapa)
Where did you buy the seed?

| Definitely Four o'clocks. I'd ask for your money back from whoever sold you those seeds as gardenia.
Those flowers will open late in the day, and smell very nice. But they won't make a shrub like gardenia will.
