Jasmine – Downey (Jasminum multiflorum)

Jasmine – Downey (Jasminum multiflorum)



There are about 200 species of jasmines which are all native to the Old World. Downy jasmine, which is native to India, is a type of evergreen, branching vine that can be shaped as a shrub. It is a popular landscape plant all around the world and is often used in foundation plantings, hedges, borders, or mass plantings. If allowed to sprawl, the vine will cascade down walls or over fences. The fast-growing plant can grow 5-10 feet in height as well as width and does well in full sun to partial shade. It is also moderately drought tolerant. The grayish-green stems and leaves of this plant appear to be covered with down and the white, clustered flowers which appear year-round are white. Although the flowers are beautiful, they are not as fragrant flowers on other jasmines.
