    Usually people are talking about a Gardenia radicans (Creeping Gardenia) when they say dwarf. The creeping Gardenia gets somewhere between 2 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide. I think though you grow different species in Hawaii than we grow here in the south east. There are a LOT of Gardenias!

    Your question led me to the very interesting web site for "The Plant List," which identifies 145 accepted species names for the genus Gardenia:
