Help identifying this houseplant

I was given this houseplant. However, the plant marker is for a general tropical plant. The leaves remind me of lemon tree leaves. Thank you!

Hi Heather,


I think your plant looks like a Gardenia Plant.

Fragrant white flowered Gardenia Plant

Gardenia Plant

Gardenia Plants have beautifully scented, waxy, white flowers, and glossy green leaves, but are very temperamental plants and won’t put up with neglect. A Gardenia Plant requires very specific growing conditions and constant attention. You can read how to care for this rather difficult flowering houseplant in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.
