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.
