Jasminum angulare is a scrambling and climbing shrub with fragrant white flowers in summer. This species is grown as an ornamental in gardens. The flowers are strongly sweet-scented and can be added to pot-pourris mixtures.
Generally not harvested
Clean the flesh off the berries and sow the seeds in sterile, well-drained seedling mix, in spring or summer, keep warm and moist and pot up when the seedlings are large enough to handle.
Root semi-hardwood cuttings in spring or summer, when the plants are in active growth. Treat with a rooting hormone and place in the mist unit with bottom heat.
Plants also send out long runners, which often root far away from the mother plant. These can be detached and potted, or the runners along the ground can be encouraged to root by placing a rock on it.
Attracts useful insects
Bees are attracted to the nectar in the flowers.
Can withstand extended periods without water but performs best with good watering in spring and summer.
Can be grown in large containers in fertile potting mix with good drainage, a lightly shaded position and good watering to prevent the medium drying out completely.
Train up a structure to provide a hedge screen.
