Tabernaemontana divaricata (Pinwheel Jasmine) is a large shrub that can reach 5-10 feet tall and wide, with smallish, fragrant, pinwheel-like white or off-white flowers that bloom from spring to fall. This low-maintenance plant is perfect for adding a tropical feel to any garden or yard, and it will attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators. It requires full sun with some semi-shade and regular watering as needed, making it a great last-minute addition to your garden.

If you live in a cold region, you can even still enjoy Pinwheel Jasmine. With a bit of extra preparation, this plant is surprisingly easy to grow in pots. Look for a pot that is large enough to fit the root system, so the plant can grow and thrive. Use quality potting soil, and make sure to keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. If you can find a sheltered spot with morning sun and afternoon shade, that would be best for the plant.

What sets Pinwheel Jasmine apart is its salt-tolerance and ability to tolerate seaside conditions. As long as the soil is well-drained and not too alkaline, the plant will do well even in salty soil and air. It is hardy in USDA Zones 9-11, but with some extra care it will survive even colder regions.

Overall, Tabernaemontana divaricata (Pinwheel Jasmine) is an attractive, low-maintenance choice for gardeners who are looking for a splash of color throughout the year. With its fragrant white flowers, salt-tolerance and hardiness, this large shrub is perfect for any garden. Add some to your landscape today and enjoy its beauty all year round!
