Known for its 3" pure white flowers, this jasminum has the largest blooms of any Jasmine. J. Rex is smothered in clouds of white in autumn and early winter. Although its leaves are relatively large, its growth is somewhat slow making it containable in limited space. Its lovely white flowers bring a freshness of color to home and conservatory. Hardy Zone 10 and higher. Blooms in fall and winter.

Jasminum rex indeed is a very unusual, spectacular jasmine.

Unlike other jasmines, this one has almost no fragrance, however the blooms look so amazing... It blooms profusely, covered with dozens of flowers for many days to a few weeks.

Jasmine rex is not the easiest plant to grow, however it is not difficult as long as you know what it needs. The main critical factor is excellent drainage. It doesn't like soggy soil or wet feet. At the same time it needs regular watering. Full sun is also a must for flowering.

Humidity is not a critical factor. Remember it is a tropical plant that needs frost-free environment. It is more cold sensitive than other jasmines although it may survive a few hours of light frost.

Once established, it grows vigorously. Make sure to apply fertilizer during active growth. Plant it in a sunny spot using very good quality soil, and do not overwater.
