Gardenia Carinata?

This unusual yellow flower was photographed near the new entrance to the Botanical Gardens next to the Taman Serasi food court. I have not been able to identify it. Browsing throughmy books yielded a possible identity - that of the Kedah Gardenia or Gardenia carinata which is a medium-sized tree. That was what caused me to doubt if I had the right flower because what I saw was a shrub and it did not occur to me that I was looking at something that would grow into a tree. There were no signs or labels to identify these flowers, what a pity.
