We have been given this plant and would love to know what flower it is. It looks like a gardenia, but they do not grow in our Zone, 3B

Would help to identify it if you could post a pic of the foliage and some details as to the size of the plant etc......

Those look like daylilies. There is a huge variety of daylilies and they cover the entire zone range from Zone 1 to 11 depending on cultivar .. Those are very nice looking white blooms on yours.

That's daylily foliage in the background, Dave. I think the plant is actually some form of double flowering campanula (bellflower).

Yes you are right Donna. The back ground is a Daylily. I am submitting a better picture with back ground blocked out and a hand in it for size guage.
Thanks
