Wow! A Gardenia!

I purchased this Gardenia plant from our local gardening store.  I know it's not really for our zone.  I am zone 4a.   
It was loaded with buds.   About 3/4 of the buds fell off.  I threatened the poor thing. I told it I was going to take it back to  the store if it didn't do something soon.   The next day this flower appeared.   How about that! 

     It's not a very clear picture, for that  I apologize, but it was the final shot before my camera  batteries died.   Hopefully, more blooms are on the way.
