Handsome "African Jasmine." Dark foliage (oblong leathery leaves in groups of three) on shrubby vine perfectly foils the abundant very sharply fragrant open clusters of white starflowers of thick substance with triangular lobes. South African native of robust growth once established--stand back if this strikes root in your greenhouse floor. Sometimes a challenge to propagate and not any too pleased with growing in containers, so best considered a propagate-to-order item.
|Cultural Code||TGH HP|
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.×
