"Day Jessamine" or "Willow-lvd Jasmine" West indies shrub with clusters of greenish-white flowers, with petals bent backward, spearmint-fragrant by day; followed by even more dramatic and strikingly beautiful eggplant purple berries in abundant sprays so dense as to tip the branchlets. Demands bright light & even moisture for best results (not an ideal houseplant)--a traditional favorite in northern hobby greenhouses as produces much interest in mid-winter flower & late spring fruit with very low maintenance.
|Cultural Code||HP CGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
