Soil: A good mix of rich organic soil with good drainage is preferred
For those who enjoys fragrant flowers, jasmine is must-have. While the individual flowers might not carry much fragrance individually, the number of flowers more than makes up for it. Most types of jasmine are either vines or shrubs, and can grown much bigger and produce more flowers when planted outside; however, almost all of them can be grown in the pots as well. Jasminum sambac is one that is usually grown in pots. Because most of them canĄ¯t handle cold winter very well, it is better to move them indoors during cold winter.
Though it has the strong scent that similar to true jasmine, the Madagascar jasmine or Bridal Wreath is in the family of Asclepiadacea. With deep green waxy leaves and large porcelain-like flowers that emit a sweet fragrance, it is no wonder the flower is used as bridal wreath.Because it is a tropic plant, it is better to treat it as a house plant. It prefers bright spots with moderate temperature. If left outside during warm weather, it should be moved indoors before temperatures drop below 40 degree F.
