Evergreen vine, grows rapidly up to 20 feet (6 m). Produces masses of flowers in February to April. The buds are pink, hence the name Pink Jasmine. The flowers are white and very fragrant. Absolutely spectacular for winter and spring bloom with dense clusters of starry white flowers completely covering the handsome glossy foliage. Individual flowers are rose colored on the outside and a plant in full bloom can perfume a large area. Vining growth can be encouraged upward or allowed to cascade in a hanging basket.
