Tiny bugs on gardenia blossoms

Georgetown, SC(Zone 8a)

What are these little tiny (smaller than fleas) bugs on this gardenia? They are on every blossom.
I have many gardenias but they have only appeared on this one bush.

And if you know what they are, please let me know how to get them to vacate! :)
Thanks,
Deb

They are about the size of gnats (no-see-ums, as some folks say). Could that be it?

probably thrips. are you having trouble with the flowers opening?

I am new to gardening and am having this exact issue myself! Did anyone fully answer what bug this is? I am not having trouble getting my buds to open...

They look like thrips to me. Here is a link with some photos and info on them:
