Gardeners' Notes:


On Sep 15, 2012, BayAreaTropics from Hayward, CA wrote:

I bought mine around 2006. It was potted up and had been in that pot ever since..needing regular watering and a saucer under it helps greatly in dry California. The flowers are larger than the typical Jasmine sold everywhere here,no fragrance that I noticed. Well,after all these years it was just planted in ground a few hours ago. I'm sure it's very amendable to be kept in a 3' tall,4' wide range.
This was another Kmart plant that was on the market at all stores one year,not so many a couple of years later..and now? I don't see them for sale anywhere. You just never know ..and best buy rather then thinking "They will always be common"...

This has been a very hardy jasmine for me. It can sometimes go either way in our zone 9. But this has been a very strong evergreen, bloomed sporadically through the winter and is now covered in buds and blooms. The hummingbirds love it.

I think this plant may be hardier than 25 degrees. It has been 25-28 degrees here at night for the past 2 weeks and my Jasmine angulare is still in full bloom! It is outside on my patio.
