Overview

Jasminum is a large genus containing almost 200 species of evergreen or deciduous shrubs and twining climbers in the Oleaceae family. This genus is commonly known by the name Jasmine and it originates from warm temperate and tropical climates in Eurasia, Australasia and Oceania. They are commonly cultivated for their attractive, often pinnate leaves and waxy, attractively scented white or yellow flowers. In gardens they are useful as vigorous climbers that will rapidly clothe a wall. They prefer sun and a sheltered position.
