The glossy green leaves form a moderately dense, seemingly unremarkable evergreen shrub. When the weather warms, vine-like stems produce large clusters of small, unimpressive looking greenish blooms. Night falls, the flowers open, and the air is filled with a heavenly fragrance. If grown outdoors, the blooms are followed by ornamental white berries. A particular favorite of butterflies, this plant is not selected for its appearance, but for the intoxicating scent it lends to your evening strolls, al fresco dining and the magical moonlit enjoyment of your garden.
Hardy in zones 8B -11, night blooming jasmine is not tolerant of frost. Mulch to protect the roots where left in the ground. But grow this bewitching wonder in a container and bring it indoors over fall and winter - it will continue to bloom while the temperatures remain in the 70-80 range. Enjoy a summer breeze year round as it blows the extraordinary scent of this jasmine through your dreams!
