Jasminum polyanthum, also known as Pink Jasmine (or White Jasmine), is an evergreen twining climber native to China and Burma (Myanmar). It produces an abundance of reddish-pink flower buds in late winter and early spring, followed by fragrant five-petalled star-like white flowers which are about 2 cm in diameter. It has compound leaves with 5 to 7 leaflets which are dark green on the upper surface and a lighter green on the lower surface. The terminal leaflet is noticeably larger than the other leaflets. The plant is very vigorous and can grow up to 6 metres in height when supported. Depending on the climate, this vine has a semi-deciduous to evergreen foliage.

  1. These are beautiful flowers. Now am not sure if the low growing bush close to where we lived at the condo was Jasmine of honeysuckle, bcause the buds were not pink like these. Also they had different leaves.

  2. Very pretty little flowers and the scent is overwhelming even from here. We had one growing over our outdoor toilet and it was almost a pleasure to spend time there.
