Ahhh..Gardenia's! I have several bushes that are full of blooms..I just love the smell. Great pics Spider.
A couple years ago I thought my bushes were going to die, they were black with white fly residue. I tried everything I could find and more and was losing the battle. I had about given up when a thought hit me...WD40.. LOL. I know that sounds crazy but the bushes were dying anyway so why not try it. I sprayed the bushes, waited about an hour and sprayed them hard with the water hose. It worked!! I thought the bush would probably die anyway from the oil in the spray but just the opposite. I still have my Gardenia bushes and they're greener than ever.

Mine still have a few blooms. They will get a serious trim this year. It's do or die. They have a lot of dead stuff right in the middle of the bushes:(
Your are beautiful

Take some cutting's after the bloom's fall off and the new growth start's.Take most of the leave's off stick them in a glass container of water sit in a warm spot. In a couple week's they will have root's.:)
