Care & Handling Jasmine

Jasminum nitidum

The Angelwing Jasmine is an evergreen vining shrub with glossy dark green leaves bearing fragrant white star-like flowers during mid-spring through summer.

Water: Keep soil evenly moist, water plentifully during the plants growth period from early spring through the fall. During the cooler months, let the top ½ of soil dry between waterings. After watering drain off any excess water. Light: Place in a sunny window so the plant can receive 4-6 hours of sunlight a day. An East or West-facing window is best. With inadequate light the plant will cease flowering, drop leaves and growth will be thin. Temperatures: Indoors, Jasmine should be placed in daytime temperatures of 60-80F and nighttime temperatures no lower than 40F. Fertilize: Fertilize with a water-soluble fertilizer twice a month during the growing season from April-September. Tips: Jasmine grows well outdoors ( southern states) in partial shade during the warmer months. Bring indoors (northern states) prior to freezing temperatures. Jasmine grows rapidly and need pruning to maintain its shape. Prune right after the bloom cycle or at anytime if the plant is getting leggy. Plant material such as this product should not be eaten. While most plants are harmless some contain toxins.
