White Gardenia by artist Ted Mundorff - 20" tall by 15" wide.

This original Offset Lithograph was printed circa 1945.

White gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides) is a fragrant flowering plant renowned for its creamy white, waxy blossoms and glossy, dark green leaves. Native to Asia, particularly China, Taiwan, and Japan, it has become popular worldwide as an ornamental shrub or small tree. The gardenia flowers, characterized by their sweet and intoxicating scent, make them sought after for gardens, bouquets, and as a fragrance component in various products. The plant requires specific growing conditions, including acidic soil and consistent moisture, to thrive. Gardenias are associated with purity, love, and refinement and have cultural significance in some traditions. In addition to its ornamental use, the gardenia extracts are employed in perfumery, aromatherapy, and traditional medicine for their aromatic and potentially therapeutic properties.
