    Design IdeasHere is a Hawaiian flower to grow in frost-free gardens on the mainland. Excellent in small courtyards and city gardens. Train over windows and doorways, and up onto overhead shade structures. Drape this Jasmine over walls or let it cascade in waves off raised planters. With your help, it will climb wood or chain-link fences to shroud them in foliage and flowers.

    Care Information

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.Pruning time: summer after flowering.
    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).
