What Kind of Jasmine?
I’ve been searching about this Jasmine (well, I still think it’s one of the jasmine family) though after googling through between the descriptions of Trachelospermum jasminoides and Trachelospermum asiaticum both do not fit my jasmine plant.
When I bought this almost 4 years ago, the man at the nursery told me this is another type of jasmine. It has a fragrant blossoms that continuously grow well despite the sun and the rain.
From what I read, the T.asiaticum or Asian jasmine plant should have oval leaves while mine is quite long and thin leaves.
And those flowers images on the Web do not have whiskers like my flowers. Now I wonder whether this plant really belongs to a jasmine family.
So anybody out there who knows the real name for this plant, do drop by and tell me. It is really bugging me to think that I don’t know what kind of jasmine-like plant I actually have in my garden..huhu!
Didnt notice the flowers before, though the leaves looks familiar. How tall is the plants? Does it needs very strong sun to flower?
It’s growing taller to almost 1m now, I’m not sure about the sun because I have put it at the same spot ever since where it gets full sun everyday. Unlike the normal jasmine bush, this one is more like a tree with thin branches.
I will take the full picture of this plant next time I’m out with my camera. 🙂
I saw this plant frm “Laman Impiana” mag. last time, its called Jasmin Thai or Wrightia antidysenterica, but i doubt thats the same species as the leaves looked totally different
I’ve checked the links given. I am sure it is not my plant genus since the leaves and flower is very different.
Maybe my plant is not really a jasmine family. I hope next time I go to Flora Fest, I can find the same plant and I will surely ask the nursery owner what it is called.
Nerium Oleander L – LamanAsia Edisi 3 – Pg23
This looks to me to be an Oleander. They need full sun to bloom. Have long cylindrical leaves. And the flower looks the same. If that is the plant be very careful not let a child get the leaves or branches in their mouth. They have strychnine in them and are deadly or so I am told. Very beautiful plants and they grow like a tree shrub.
I also think this looks like an Oleander bush. They can die off to the ground if the cold winter wind gets to them, and then restart from the ground or one remaining “twig”. Therefore, it resembles a tree. There also is a type of shrub called a “fringe flower”, so maybe you can try looking that up as well. Best of luck with your plant identification project!!!
