Successive bloom jasmine vines?

princesspea(sunset14)January 16, 2014

Hi all,

My sweet husband loves the scent of jasmine (vining varieties) and has asked if I can plant it around his summertime outdoors office . In our area there are many available to grow outdoors but all seem to bloom once a year and then be done. I wonder if I can plant the trio of J. Polyanthum, J. Stephanese, and J. Officianale for a longer bloom time? Any other ideas? Should I add confederate jasmine also?
Things are appearing in our garden centers here in California where we are having a nice drought, heat wave and wildfires. May as well make the best of it.

Thanks!
Pea

Princess,
Why not?
I would plant them all in pots. Seperately tho.
They tend to get big and the roots will choke each other out after a year or two, so just pot them in a good potting mix and put 3 pots outside of the window.
They should do fine, I have Confederate jasmine "Madison" planted in various areas outside, one in front of a window, and I am always trimming it.
Madison is evergreen, blooms white fragrant flowers iun May and June, and if you keep trimming it, it will bloom even later.

Add South African jasmine (jasminum angulare) to the list. I live in Orange County, CA. It blooms in our mild winters.

Thank you both! I will add the j. Angulare, is it at all shade tolerant?

I have lots of large pots lining my porch I can use, thanks for the tip about roots, I always forget that aspect of things .

Hi Pea!

Throwing in my two cents. ;)

Jasminum grandiflorum (single variety, grandiflorum blooms much longer than J. officinale however it's not as cold hardy)
Jasminum azoricum (not cold hardy so if you grow it in a pot you'll have to bring it indoors when it gets cold)
Jasminum molle (more bush like but it does send out 'whips' that you can tie to a trellis to help it 'climb', not cold hardy)
And finally Mandevilla laxa. Not a jasmine but neither is Trachelospermum jasminoides. :)
