A perfumed fragrance that tantalizes the senses is one of the many attributes this marvelous species brings to the container gardener. A native of the Azores, the vigorous, dense growing vines flower from spring through fall. When grown under sunny, warm conditions there is even an occasional spray of bloom during the winter. For the Jasmine or fragrant plant collector, this variety is a must. Clusters of multi-petaled, pure white blooms form on the growing tips with individual flowers emerging over several weeks.

Tips for Success:
Remember, they are warm, lowland tropical plants and need a warm root system. The most vigorous is ‘Maid of Orleans.’ Slower growing varieties are ‘Flore Plena’ and ‘Grand Duke.’
• Use clay pots to maintain healthy roots.
• Bring soil to visual dryness between waterings.
• Occasionally bring to a slight wilt between waterings.
• Moderate amounts of fertilizer, not heavy feeders.
• Stop feeding in winter.
• All respond well to pruning; best not to prune in winter when growth is slow.
