About Jasminum polyanthum
This popular evergreen vine is known as Jasminum polyanthum. Commonly known as Pink Jasmine, you can expect clusters of showy white flowers that bloom late Winter through early Summer. Complimented by long, narrow green leaves, the flowers’ size reach about one inch wide with a pink base and gives off an intoxicating fragrance. This variety is a great landscape option as you can train it to fill a large or small space with minimal effort.
Plant the Jasminum polyanthum in enriched well-drained soils and be sure to water regularly keeping the soil lightly moist. Be careful not to overwater as this vine does not like soggy soils. The Pink Jasmine does well planted in sun or shade but benefits from some shade if you are located in a hot or dry climate. Prune after flowering to keep a desired shape or to control its size.
Where to plant
With a trailing growth habit consider planting this vine up a trellis, over a gateway, on a fence, post, column or even over a patio arbor to add some shade. As a fast grower, this plant can reach twenty to twenty-five feet tall with support and with a long blooming season this is an obvious vine choice for a cottage or Asian style landscape.
