Red flowers found on gardenia tree

Zone 34112 | Playzgreninja96 added on May 9, 2016 | Answered

I thought gardenia only came in white but over the past few years I have noticed red flower buds growing and blooming along with my gardenia tree, double petal 4-5 across petal to petal. The tree is about 5 feet tall and 3 1/2 wide. Can anyone tell me if I should be worried? Could this be a sudden mutation or is it a rare occurrence?

I have not found any information on a red flower on a Gardenia.

The Gardenia will produce a seed that is red/orange in color after blooming.
Here is a link that has images of this.
