Jasminum polyanthum, a native of western China, is a fast-growing, evergreen vine. It can climb up to 20 feet and is best grown in USDA Zones 8-11. Its dark green leaves contrast beautifully with clusters of delicate rosy buds, which open to reveal star-shaped white and off-white fragrant blooms from February to April. Perfect for filling in an evergreen trellis or hanging basket, the blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds in warmer climates.

Plant Pink Jasmine in an area that gets full sun to light shade. Once established, it handles medium to low water needs. Water regularly during the spring and summer, making sure not to over-water the plant. During the winter, reduce water for an evergreen vine, but do not water it so much that the soil is dry or the roots are deprived of water.

In colder climates, Pink Jasmine can be grown in a container and taken indoors to protect it from the winter weather. Make sure the pot is well-draining and has adequate air circulation. Use a soil mix that drains well and can hold some moisture. Water regularly, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Place the pot near a window that faces south or west that receives full sun or partial shade. Make sure to bring the potted plant indoors before temperatures drop below freezing, as it can only tolerate a few hours of cold temperatures.

Pink Jasmine is a beautiful, hardy and versatile flower that will add delicate beauty to any landscape. With its fragrant blooms and low-maintenance needs, it's a fantastic addition to any garden.
