Gardenia jasminoides from my neighbour's garden (Hooghly, WB):

I shot these flowers this evening while i was returning home, exhausted as usual after a long day’s work. These flowers were smiling at me over the boundary wall of my neighbour’s house! In no time i was rejuvenated and clicked them using my camera flash.

Gardenias are beautiful, shrubby evergreen houseplants well loved for their creamy, fragrant blooms.  
The shrub that can grow 6-8 ft (1.8-2.4 m) high with almost equal spread.
The leaves are glossy and leathery. 
Mature shrubs usually look round, and have a medium texture. This is not a "bloom all at once and it’s over" shrub! It blooms in mid-spring to early summer over a fairly long season.
The flowers are white, turning to creamy yellow as they age, and have a waxy feel.  
They have a powerful, sweet fragrance, and can perfume an entire room.  
Gardenia is native to Japan, China and India 

very nice
you are right about the fragrance
I have two of these in my garden below in our apt...

Rubiaceae Week : Gardenia jasminoides: Attaching the photos of *Gardenia jasminoides* that i recorded on 07/02/2012. We call it GANDHARAJ in Bengali. 
I wanted to delete these images because i don't have any flower pic. But after seeing the post of ... (http://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/9ea59f58d19a229/febf34b1ec160c4f?lnk=gst&q=Gardenia+jasminoides#febf34b1ec160c4f) I thought otherwise.
I seek ... permission to treat it as complementary post.
It is common garden shrub here. But I apologize that I haven't taken its flower pictures yet. May be in coming months i will be able to get some.
Beautiful shrub ... In flower it looks even more beautiful. Just wait for the spring.
Yes Sir. And sweet fragrance too.

Gardenia jasminoides from Solan
This photo was provided to me by a friend in Solan 4 years Back
Excellent capture of the beautiful flower ... I like its fragrance.
Nice closeup ... It looks like this plant is only cultivated -- nobody seems to find it in wild.
Yes ... never seen this in wild

Place: along Katraj Ghat near Pune, Maharashtra.
Time: July 12, 2008 at 11.08am
Habit: large shrub (or small tree)
Habitat: most probably planted (along road near human settlement)
Plant height: about 10 ft
Flower size: about 1.5" - 2" across
Apologies for not covering various aspects of the plant; only two photos available.

I also think this is one of the cultivars of Gardenia jasminoides.
Yes i too will go with Gardenia jasminoides
Yes ... Looks similar to one uploaded by me

This is barely one and a half ft. tall, yet it seems to be the Gardenia florida of the FLORA INDICA.
This would be GANDHORAAJ in English transliteration.
 
DSCF0761: Attachments (2). There are 2 trees in the first photograh. The rear one is Michelia Champaca. The one in front could be Mohua [a Madhuca sp.].
The front one could be Gardenia resinifera
The tree at the back looks like Mimusops elengi L. and the tree in the front seems to be Gardenia resinifera
To me also the tree in the front looks like Gardenia resinifera.
Gardenia jasminoides?

can anyone plz id this flowering plant? : 7 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (1)
photo taken in MUMBAI, on 21st March 2015, whole plant had bloomed in plenty. I think it is Gardenia jasminoids but I am confused with the variety... am i correct?.. plz help.
Yes, this is what I know as Gardenia jasminoides J.Ellis, leaves and flowers are variable across cultivars. Variation has been noted in FoC and flower form can be seen at 
http://plantillustrations.org/species.php?id_species=453475.
Gardenia jasminoides to me too.
Thank you all for confirming the id. One more query., In India do we see fruiting in these plants as in China?
Not yet fortunate to see the fruits.
I too didn't see any fruit, and these are common here. Similarly, I have never seen any Jasminum sambac fruit. We have both the species for years. One common example is Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, capsules are there in literature, but I think one can hardly have seen those capsules. One my much younger friend, who did his M.Sc. in Botany from CU told me that those china-roses do produce capsules under controlled cultivation. I think decades of propagation by cutting and grafting have made this cultivars reluctant to bear the pain of producing fruits!

Strophanthus gratus  (Wall. & Hook.) Baill.

This is definitely not Strophanthus.
Looks like Gardenia jasminoides to me. 

Thanks very very much ... for correcting the ID; I am making a lot of mistakes in my posts and notes now !! Have to take care !!

I agree. its a Gardenia. the ususal garden variety. that does not set  fruit in India

Butt Mogra from Pune: Sharing Butt Mogra from my garden, at Pune.
I didnt know that our humble n sweet fragrant Butt Mogra has such a Majestic botanical name- Jasminum sambac var. 'Grand Duke Of Tuscany'. Dated- June 11.

beautiful flower, but I think this is Anand or Gardenia flower because mogra leaves are rounder and here it is pointed. Not sure, waiting for answers.
this is gardenia... look at the green bud... gardenia for sure... and the yellow anther peaking a little...
mogra never has anther so large that it is visible like this
exact variety don not know...
but gardenia of garden variety that every body has...
I think Gardenia jasminoides J.Ellis as per images herein.

Seen at a plant nursery in Nasik on 3/2/14.
The leaves looked different than the ones we see generally, which are pointed at the ends.
it seems different from G. jasminoides?
efi page on Gardenia jasminoides
I understand ... concern. But it can still be Gardenia jasminoides. Please compare my set of photographs attached here. Specially note the sepals.

Thanks for your pictures. Very beautiful pictures.
It could be Gardenia jasminoides after all.
The leaves were not pointed at the ends as we usually see. Flower was the same.
Sorry, ..., I missed your points regarding the leaf base and apex. I will check again and will inform you if I find any clue. Meanwhile, let's wait for more feedbacks.
