Hi! I'm Star Jasmine. I am the darling of many creatures world-wide particularly for the sweet-smelling fragrance my flowers produce from mid to late summer. At home, my twining arms will climb your well-lit interior space and accent your bed-frame or perhaps cabinet with my elegant vine body. I will get along perfectly with a nurturing soul.
Difficulty: moderate, needs some love and support
Light Needed: moderate, full sun to partial shade
Water: not much, every 10-14 days
A fast-growing vine prized for my glossy green foliage and spectacular display of pink buds that open to intensely fragrant white flowers. The presence of both bloom and bud throughout the flowering season (mid to late summer) gives me a wonderful bicolor effect. Train on a trellis to be a climber!

Needs full sun to partial shade. A few hours of direct sun a day is ideal, full sun will help produce maximum flowers during the bloom season.
Regular watering is the best, about every 10-14 days. Keep a consistent schedule! If you live in a hot climate, consider watering a bit more frequently.
Adapts well to both hot and cold temperatures, ideal is 60-75°.
