    Design IdeasA 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.

    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
