I'm working on an old established garden. Supposedly the guy who built it planted every tree and plant native to Louisiana in the garden and around the property. I've looked through plant encyclopedias and what not, but I cannot find this plant. It blooms orange little buds in late summer . And it may have been a common plant during the 60s.

the seed pod are of Gardenia Sp, there are some with yellow-orangish flower, like G tubifera, ('kula') but I have no idea of what can grow in there.

Agree with tofitropic.
Can see a seed pod clearly in your pic...see your image trimmed.

Thank you. I just didn't know what it was, because I have seen it fruit but never bloom.
I'm sure this year or by next year I can have it blooming for the first time in many years, now that I know what it is.

I agree on Gardenia too; the leaves remind me of Gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides 'Frostproof') Photos of the little orange fruits of Frostproof can be seen on this page: http://acharlottegarden.blogsp...
