Common name: Sweetly scented jasmine
Jasminum are evergreen or deciduous shrubs that often climb via twining stems. Their fragrant flowers are star-shaped.
Sweetly scented Jasminum polyanthum, is a twining climber best grown as a houseplant – it’s a fine choice for a conservatory. It looks fantastic all year round, bearing dark, glossy evergreen foliage which contrasts with masses of white, deeply fragrant flowers from late-winter to spring.
The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Grow Jasminum polyanthum up an obelisk or similar support in a large pot, or train it to cover a wall. It can be taken outside to a sheltered, sunny patio in summer. Cut back after flowering to keep growth in check.
Whether grown outside or indoors all Jasmine require bright light with some direct sun if possible, therefore a South facing window will be the perfect spot to grow your plant in..
While it's in flower and is in active growth a Jasmine will need plenty of water. The soil needs to be moist almost all the time, and this is imperative whilst in flower. If the soil dries up then so will the flowers and pending buds. With that said do be careful with the interpretation of the word "moist", soggy conditions or sitting in a tray of water is classed as "wet" not "moist".
Misting the leaves (not the flowers) occasionally is beneficial, but no real harm will come if you don't unless the room you have chosen for it is very dry.
A moderate fertilizing routine is all that's required as it's not overly demanding when it comes to feeding. For good all round health try providing a standard house plant liquid feed every couple of weeks from late Spring until late Autumn / Fall.
Temperature is important for Jasmine plants. During the growing seasons (the naturally warmer months of the year) what nature provides will be fine. So if it's a hot day and temperatures rise, it will accommodate this without issue.
