Jasmine / Minima

Latin Name:

Jasminum

Description:

Jasmine is a genus of vines and shrubs related to the olive plant. There are about 200 species of jasmine, most of which are climbers. Jasmine can be either deciduous or evergreen. Many houseplant varieties, along with winter varieties, bloom in January or early February. Jasmine planted out-of-doors is a spring or summer bloomer noted for its strong, sweet smell.

In Indonesia jasmine is used in wedding ceremonies; in Thailand it is the symbol of the mother. True jasmine has oval shiny leaves and white tubular flowers. It is non-poisonous, problem-free, and grows 12-24 inches per year. Because vines can become invasive, frequent pruning may be necessary.

Nectar from Carolina jasmine (a false jasmine) is poisonous. Carolina jasmine (Gelsemium semperviren) is often erroneously included in the genus. Jasminum grandiflorum and Jasminum officinale are used for oil production, perfumes, lotions, soaps and shampoos.
