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.
