Gardenia jasminoides, Common Gardenia.

The single flower is the typical species. All of the doubled flower types are cultivars.

Your photo would be useful in the PlantFiles as none of the photos in the entry depict the type species. They all depict double flowered cultivars.

Your photo would be the first in the entry that shows the true typical species, from the wild.
