Zone 9-10

The name "Jasmine" basically refers to some of the many varieties of shrubs (above), vines (like sambac, pink and confederate) and small trees (like Lakeview).  They are all blessed with fragrant white flowers many people and insects enjoy. True jasmines are related to the olive, privet and osmanthus

Many plants called jasmine are not jasmine but closely resemble the classic flower appearance and fragrance. In the list at the bottom you will see some of the many plant types (Latin names) said to be a jasmine

True jasmines are native to India, Western China and other parts of Asia including Japan, Borneo, Thailand, and some South Seas islands

The Pinwheel Jasmine is a fine shrub blooming well in sunny conditions. Most jasmines need bright sun for performance in flowers and leaves. However, a few are well suited to shade and can be used as a small hedge in lower light conditions, still producing some color

Tolerant of most soils, jasmines don't handle salt air, but are easy to manage with reasonable water available and decent drainage. Fertilize normally, but jasmines are light feeders so go easy but incorporate good soil
