Originally from India, the evergreen, exotic Orange jasmine is a large shrub that can reach a height of 2.5 m. The dark, glossy leaves contrast sharply with the white, bell-shaped flowers – reminiscent of the jasmine plant. The fragrant blooms are borne in clusters, containing up to eight flowers, at the tips of branches. Flowers are carried throughout summer and have a strong, yet pleasant citrus fragrance that will pervade your garden.
Adding to the ornamental value of the plant, plum-sized red berries are formed from the flowers. Once established, the Orange jasmine is fairly frost resistant and needs moderate watering to thrive. The plant adapts well to trimming and training, either in a hedge shape or a small tree form. The Orange jasmine also makes a lovely container plant and grows happily in a sunny position on the patio.
