what kind of jasmine sambac is this- pic

kandhi(z7VA)May 28, 2010

one of my friend gave me a cutting that I rooted and this is the first bloom. The fragrance is very strong and am wondering why this is not available in nurseries. The flowers are mulitipletal and I am pretty sure it is not grandduke because the leaf structure is different from grandduke and the flower size is bigger and different fragrance than grandduke. Can anyone identify this variety?

Kemisty, I do not think it is not gd supreme, the plant is vigourous in its growth unlike grandduke and it has 2 leaves at each node instead 3 leafleds.

Radhavall, my friend does not know the name of it and she had this plant since past 8years. I may take few more cuttings from her plant to root more plants.

Kandhi,

Can you take another pic of the flower. I looked at my Grand duke, it has 2,3,and 4 leaves sometimes. And Grand duke flowers are also variable from looking like double petal Jasmine to looking like mini roses..If the smell is indeed different, then it could be another variety. And If so can you count me for a cutting? I do have many varieties of plants for exchange if you so prefer...

Mike and Radha, Sure I will if I get to have few cutting. Since I am in VA we bring plants indoors and they are not in good shape to take a cutting. By june there may be new growth on the plant where I can ask her for some clippings again this year. Last year I took 3 cuttings and only 1 rooted well.

Hi Kandhi,

It may be mysore mulli. just check logees or "T"O"P" "t"r" o"picals website. The other thing is there are 3 varieties of Grand Duke of Tuscany. One has 3 whorls, then the other has 4 and the ones sold in stores here have 7 whorls(layers of Petals). Folks back in India have told me that and I remember seeing diff. varieties as a child! Kandhi where in Virginia do you live? I am planning to visit there soon and would love to get cuttings of diff. jasmine.
you can also email me directly.

hope this helps

Kandhi--What kind of soil combination do you start your cuttings in. Do you use a root hormone and do you cover lightly with plastic to retain moisture.

Helenck, I user cactus soil mix with perlite as medium to grow the cuttings. I also use the rooting hormone, but I was able to root the currtings without dipping in hormone too. Covering with a plastic to retain humidity is a must without that the cuttings won't root. Here is the pic of the bloom that was taken last week on the same jasmine plant that was started with a cutting.

Kandhi,

Could you put me down for a cutting please? I can pay for it or swap plants if interested in exchange. I also replied to another post where you requested cuttings of Arabian jasmine, and I will be glad to share that in exchange. I cant seem to send email from GW directly, please email me directly at mrao77@hotamail.com
Thanks
