|Design Ideas||A most popular Jasmine, with its abundant fragrant flowers and willingness to withstand mild frosts. Use to dress up old fences, train over gateways and up posts, columns and trellage. Train on an arbor, where light lacy quality offers filtered sun below. Particularly lovely on walls bearing grid trellis and when draped over windows so the fragrance wafts inside.|
|Companion Plants||Clematis (Clematis); Hibiscus (Hibiscus); Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia); Rose (Rosa); Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina)|
|Care||Thrives in enriched, lightly moist, well-drained soils; avoid soggy soils. Best in full sun in cool coastal regions; benefits from some shade in hot, dry inland areas. Prune after flowering to shape and control size. May be semi-deciduous in Zone 8 winters; overwinter indoors in colder regions. As a houseplant, mist periodically.|
