Jasminum officinale, commonly known as common jasmine, is a fragrant and ornamental plant species belonging to the Oleaceae family. This plant is renowned for its beautiful white flowers and intoxicatingly sweet scent.
Common jasmine is a deciduous or semi-evergreen climbing vine that can grow up to 4 meters in height. The dark green leaves are elliptical or lance-shaped, with a glossy texture. The most distinctive feature of Jasminum officinale is its fragrant, star-shaped white flowers. These blossoms are typically small, about 2.5 cm in diameter, and have five petals. The flowers bloom in clusters and emit a sweet, intense fragrance, especially in the evening. The oil is highly prized in perfumery and is a common ingredient in various perfumes, scented oils, and aromatherapy products.
It thrives in well-drained soil, ample sunlight, and a support structure for its climbing habit. Grow as a vine on trellises, arbours, or fences, making it a popular choice for garden enthusiasts and landscape designers.
