Jasminum sambac (Arabian Jasmine)

Arabian Jasmine, Mohle Flower, White-Flowered Indian Jasmine, Zambac, Sampa Gita


Used to flavor jasmine tea in China, award-winner Jasminum sambac (Arabian Jasmine) is a twining or scrambling evergreen shrub with glossy dark green leaves and exceptionally fragrant waxy pure-white flowers, 1 in. across (2.5 cm). The blooms fade to pink as they mature. Born in clusters of 3-12 blossoms, they flower throughout the summer - and almost continuously in warm climates. Arabian Jasmine may be grown as a twining shrubby vine if support is provided, or as a sprawling shrub without any support. In Hawaii, the blossoms are a favorite for leis.
