Greenthumb's Garden


Genus: Jasminum.

Species: Jasminum sambac.

This was a tiny thing in a three inch pot. I needed to fill a space beneath a banana in this very large pot. I thought this would be a perfect partner. I have a little water pool just below the pot where the jasmine lives, tpwards the light beneath the banana, with a railing the clamber on, though now that I've researched for the variety this is, it seem to have a more shrublike habit, so it'll not spread much. :-) It really took of in this position and has started a much healthier flush of blooms. I haven't watched to see if the blossoms open up in the dark. I'd love if this variety is a night bloomer.
