Product Description:

This powerfully fragrant evergreen is a joy for the night-time garden. Clusters of lime green, slender trumpet-shaped blooms are fairly discreet until evening falls and they release their sweet perfume. This magnificent tender perennial begs to be placed near a bedroom window or alongside of a path or patio where the exquisite scent can be fully experienced. Well suited for container living, the plants thrive outdoors during warm weather and as a houseplant in cold winter months. Night Blooming Jasmine can reach 3–5 feet tall but the woody stems respond well to pruning to maintain shape. Hardy in zones 9–11; bring indoors during the winter in cooler zones.

Night Blooming Jasmine plants are shipped at the end of April/beginning of May in 3 1/2 inch pots. Order early for best availability. Available only within the contiguous US.

Initial Instructions
After unpacking, allow the plant a few days to gradually acclimate to full exposure. If you are keeping your jasmine plant in a container, re-pot it into a 6-8 inch diameter pot. The plant will require re-potting to a larger container as it grows. Up-pot when the plant appears root bound or when large roots push out the drainage holes. If planting in the ground, select a location with well-drained soil, spacing the plants 3-5 feet apart. Provide a support structure for the vines to climb; a trellis, fence, or arbor will suffice.

Cultivation
Water regularly during the first growing season, but do not allow the soil to become soggy. Fertilize early in the season with a well-balanced fertilizer, and during the growing season with a higher phosphorus fertilizer to increase flowering. Prune as needed to maintain shape and train to your support structure. For plants in the ground, mulch well in autumn to protect the roots; the vines may die back to the ground over the winter. Otherwise, bring the container into a protected location during cold months.
