As a comment about Gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides First Love® Aimee), JB wrote:

I have been propagating both standard and regular Jasminoides 'Aimee' for three years.
The flowers can get as large as 3 to 5 inches in size. You can cut them and if maintained properly they can last as long as a week as cut flowers in floral designs.

I have found the following: The speed of growth of these plants is fast. They like a lot of water and do better if you let them get a wee bit dry between watering but they may not get completely dry or the leaves will turn and drop, even if dry a very short time. They love full sun if they have plenty of water daily. Normally they like sun and partial shade. I grow only in containers. One of the most enjoyable plants I have ever grown.

As I said before, I grew mine only in containers. The comment above pretty much says it all. Full sun, water and watch it grow. Be sure you have no insects and you will love it. Send pictures, it has been years since my last one died and I never replaced it. Here are some of my beauties. This was back in 2012 when I was propagating and selling them.
