Winter jasmine rivals regular jasmine every bit in both beauty and scent. Although its name may hint at a preference for cold conditions, it is a perennial vine for warmer climates.
The lusciously scented, starry white flowers of this jasmine open in late winter to early spring. It makes a 10-foot vine in warmer climates and may be grown in a greenhouse in temperate areas.
Full sun and temperatures of 50º to 60º Fahrenheit in winter induce the most prolific bloom.
