Is it a Gardenia? Is it a Camellia? Is it a Magnolia?

Good morning everyone, oh how lovely it is to have several days on the trot of mild and sunny weather, it's been glorious for a few days now. I hope you are all well {{{{{hugs}}}}}.

The questions in the title? 
I posted this card on Docrafts and asked if anyone knew what this flower is, and the three options are what we all came up with are the ones in the title! I took the photograph 7 years ago at Elvaston Castle Country Park (more or less my local park} and never did know what it was! The flower is about 6" across.


White card is linen card from Paper Mill Direct. Green card is Papermania textured card. Dies used are Spellbinders and Memory Box. Sentiment is from an old set by Stamps and Smiles.


        This is the original photograph showing the leaves to hopefully aid identification :o)

Camellia Jackie Not Magnolia They Tend To Be More Tulip Shape This Time Of Year. Maybe Wrong.

Your card is beautiful Jackie.. and the only thing I'm pretty sure of is it's not a magnolia... at least it's not like the one in our garden! LOL! When ours is in flower, there are very few leaves... they tend to come later.

Hi Jackie, what a lovely card! I so enjoy seeing you turn your cards into such beautiful creations! For me, I would say it is a gardenia. I had them in my yard in Hawaii, they smell divine! Was looking at your recent work,and as always they are beautiful. Sorry I missed wishing you a Happy Birthday, so glad it was a great one! (Mine is next Friday, hee, hee!) Computer seems to be doing ok so far, what a mess it has been . . . Big hugs, Joanne
