Jasminum Tortuosum ID

katsucatsSeptember 28, 2012

I just received a Jasminum tortuosum I bought from Glasshouse Works a while ago. The leaves are unlike anything I've seen in picture online. I emailed Tom, but he pretty much just told me to grow it out and see what happens, which is a response I'm not exactly satisfied with. I wonder if anyone else here has one of these plants and could confirm if the leaves really do change as it matures, or maybe if this is some other variety of jasmine mislabeled?

I have a small collection of orchids, but this is my first jasmine, so I'm a bit out of my element.

I recognize this jasmine, from growing up in India. It is one of my favorites- sweet smelling, bountiful vine that climbed up rooftops! I knew it as "Jaji" or "Chameli".

I believe is is Jasminum officinale var. grandiflorum.

Hope this helps.

Your Jasmine looked like a J. Officinale to me. J. official has 3 paries of leaves plus one on the top.
J. Tortuosum has one pair of leaves plus one on the top.
