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.
