Jasminum officinale forma grandiflorum (Spanish Jasmine) - This is a semi-deciduous vine that can grow to 15 feet tall with arching square stems bearing leaves composed of small leaflets of five or seven. Spanish Jasmine supports itself by twining. At the branch tips from mid spring into fall are borne the clusters of sweetly-fragrant white flowers. The individual flowers, held on unequal-length pedicels, are 3/4 to 1 inch wide and the buds and the undersides of the petals are tinged pink. Plant in full sun with average watering. It takes temperatures down to about 15 degrees F. This plant has also been known as Jasminum grandiflorum and some consider it synonomous with the Poet Jasmine, Jasminum officinale forma affine, though the hardy Poet's Jasmine is a larger growing plant with smaller flowers with broader petals and only blooms in the summer.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Jasminum officinale forma grandiflorum.
