Family: Oleaceae
Origin: Philippines
USDA Plant Hardiness MapLarge shrub 5-10 ft tallSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite, off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Palawan Jasmine (Jasminum aemulum) is a hardy evergreen shrub native to the island of Palawan in the Philippines. It can reach heights of 5-10 ft, with oblong leaves, shortly rounded at the apex and dark green in color on both surfaces. This handsome shrub produces numerous white, fragrant, 1-2 inch wide flowers that bloom all year round, making it a highly ornamental plant. The pleasant scent of these lovely white and off-white blooms often attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

This shrub can be grown in zones 9 to 11, requiring moderate watering and a sunny location. It can also be grown in colder regions as long as it is potted and sufficiently protected from the frost. The soil should be a mix of soil and potting mix, kept slightly moist and fertilized regularly with a balanced fertilizer. A light mulch of dead leaves is recommended to protect the plant from frost and maintain its distinctive appearance and fragrance.

Palawan Jasmine is easy to maintain and with proper care it will remain healthy, rewarding the owner with its beauty and memorable fragrance. Pruning the branches after flowering is necessary to allow for sufficient light and air circulation, whilst regular inspection for pests and diseases should also be carried out.

.

Jasminum azoricum, also known as River Jasmine, is an evergreen climber with star-shaped white flowers and fragrant, summer-blooming blooms. Its dark green leaves are divided into three leaflets that not only provide a beautiful contrast to its white petals, but also give the plant a unique charm. The River Jasmine emits a heady, sensual aroma, making it a popular conservatory plant. It is also known by other synonyms such as Jasminum - lanatum, mauritianum, megalosiphon, pospischilii, rooseveltii, schroeterianum, tettense, uhligii, and zanzibariense.

The River Jasmine is remarkably versatile, as it can grow in various levels of sunlight and types of soil. In partial sun or semi-shade, or in full sun, the plant will thrive. River Jasmine prefers moist and well-drained soil, so regular watering is necessary for optimal bloom. Fertilizing the plant during its blooming period will also promote healthy growth. Grown in USDA Zones 9-11, the River Jasmine is a beautiful addition to any outdoor space, providing a splash of color with its off-white and white flowers. Not only this, but it's also an ideal place for songbirds, butterflies, and hummingbirds to visit, with its enticing aroma drawing them in.

For those who live in colder regions, the River Jasmine can be grown in a pot indoors. To best ensure healthy growth, the pot should be placed in a warm, sunny room that is away from drafts and sources of heat such as radiators and fireplaces. The pot should receive some direct sunlight for at least four hours a day. The soil should be kept moist, but not overly wet, and the plant should receive regular feedings of a balanced fertilizer. With proper care and maintenance, the River Jasmine will thrive, providing fragrant blooms throughout the year.

This fast-growing, sweet-smelling perennial vine or creeper is native to India and is widely used in ethnomedical practices. Jasminum humile (Italian Jasmine) is a hardy, evergreen climber that produces an abundance of fragrant yellow or orange flowers. This jasmine will thrive with full sun to semi-shade, regular watering, and moderate soil fertility. Hummingbirds and butterflies are attracted to the luxuriant blooms. In colder regions, it is best grown in a sunny location in a container.

Ideal for USDA Zones 7-10, Jasminum humile grows best in soils that are high in organic matter with excellent drainage. Staking or a trellis may be necessary for climbers. This climber requires regular pruning to maintain bushiness and to produce more flowers. If desired, prune them back as much as desired in early spring.

Regular watering is important for Italian Jasmine. In the heat of summer, watering twice weekly should be adequate. But during hot, dry spells, it may need extra watering. During the winter season, reduce frequency of watering since the plant is dormant. Mulching the root zone in the late fall helps to protect the roots from cold and keep them hydrated during winter.

This ethnomedical plant has a rich history of traditional use. The flowers are used to extract an oil with a warm, sweet scent. The oil is used in perfume and is believed to have many therapeutic benefits such as treating muscle spasms, sprains, anxiety, depression and some reproductive-related disorders.

Jasminum humile is an eye-catching, sweet-smelling vine that is easy to grow and a great addition to any garden. It produces an abundance of stunning flowers that are attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, making it a perfect choice for gardeners who want to attract wildlife.

One of the best jasmines for the Deep South, especially on sandy soils. This is one of the most valuable plants in landscaping. It grows wonderfully in mass plantings, very fast growing but not invasive and well-contollable by pruning. The more you cut it, the bushier it gets, forming a nice dense cloud of dark green foliage with yellow double flowers scattered like a bright cover. It is rambling, open evergreen shrub with long, slender, arching stems that will climb like a sprawling vine if given support. The flowers are borne in early spring and sporadically into summer. They are semidouble with 6-10 petals, almost 2" across, and slightly fragrant at night. Use it to trail over fences or walls, to cover unwanted views and ugly corners. It is spectacular in masses and adds interest to mixed shrub hedges and screens. Use it for erosion control on banks or slopes, the long trailing canelike stems will take root where they touch the ground. Blooms on the previous season's growth, so prune soon after flowering. Excellent for cool greenhouse or outdoors in mild climates.
