Starry wild jasmine

Jasminum multipartitum, is a species of jasmine, in the family Oleaceae, that is native to Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and South Africa. This scrambling climber can be grown in the sun or semi-shade. It produces masses of white, scented, star-shaped flowers.

Strongly branched from the base and with a dense and compact appearance, it bears small elliptical dark green leaves that form the background of a generous flowering between the end of spring and the beginning of summer (June-August). The latter is made up of large pure white flowers that are intensely perfumed and whose corolla can also present 12 petals. The buds, on the other hand, are characteristically dyed red and just as decorative.

Although it tolerates full sun, it prefers and develops better in conditions of partial shade. It needs rich and fertile, perfectly drained soils. It tolerates drought, but takes advantage of occasional summer irrigations; he regularly likes the addition of abundant organic material. After flowering it can be pruned to contain its growth or improve its compact shape. In addition to the open field, the plant gives excellent results in containers and is highly decorative even in the months in which it is free of flowers.
