The shrubbery is about 40-45 years old and these plants are easily 12 ft tall. Three people have told me they’re Gardenias. These photos were taken in early June.

    OK, I grant that it’s a gardenia……but I’m unconvinced it is 12 feet tall.
    Can I see a pic of someone standing beside it?

    Gardenia for sure. My daughter in law has several this large and beautiful. They only get a few hours of direct sunlight in the middle of the day. This might be why the grow so tall?
