Notes:

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?

    I have a similar gardinia in my yard measuring 11 feet to the top though the bulk of growth is around 10′. It was planted at least 60 years ago and is showing signs of age. I have been unable to identify which type of gardinia it is; someone told me jasmine but they are suppose to max out at 6 foot.
    Since I can’t figure out what kind it is I have been desparately trying to grow the seeds or make a cutting grow with root tone. I have had no luck yet and am open to suggestions or advice on what kind of gardinia grows this large.
