Did anyone catch the name of the shade-tolerant gardenia bush on TOH recently?

Hi. Looked like a lovely plant, but I couldn't quite catch the name. The garden dude was planting it on the southside--but well shaded--side of a house the crew is working on. The show ran here in the Pacific NW last night. Sounded like "farthergoing gardenia" or something like that. Does anyone know the proper name of this plant? Thanks.

If Roger's accent gets any stronger, we're going to need subtitles...:p Thankfully my husband is a bio nut and was able to backtrack from the genus and find the name of the plant for me... Here's a link:
