This is the true jasmine of most gardeners' acquaintance, valued for its dense cover of dark, shiny leaves and sprays of intensely fragrant flowers. Each has a white "face" and pink tube and backing. Though a rampant grower, it responds well to frequent pruning. Best in sun or light shade, in fertile soils, with moderate to regular watering.
