Flower Garden – Part XIX – Asian Jasmines

I really wanna talk about these 2 Jasmines which are native to Asia/India.

The first one is Tabernaemontana divaricata or commonly called pinwheel flower, crape jasmine, East India rosebay.  Also called as Tagar or chandni in Hindi.

The second one is Gardenia jasminoides

To my friends across continents… Both these jasmines are native to Asia… I don’t know how well they’ll fare in your countries. But they subtropical plants… So no harm in trying though 😉

These are very easy to grow plants. Since these are perennials, you just have to buy them once. They don’t need any pruning. Plant them in big pots.

They need good sunlight. If not complete, at least partial sunlight. Keep adding compost regularly, say every month for initial 4 months and then once every 45-60 days.

Happy Gardening 🙂
