French Perfume Jasmine �Flora Plena� (Jasminum grandiflorum)

I have a small French Perfume Jasmine �Flora Plena� (Jasminum grandiflorum, I just moved it up to a 6" clay pot. It is growing on my outside windowsill and gets about 5 hours sunlight. I was thinking of moving it up to my rooftop; I am in NYC it gets very sunny and in the summer hot up there. Would that be too intense? I assume jasmines like full sun.

Hi there Tetra,

In my experience, this jasmine does well here in full sun; The leaves on mine are green and healthy, no signs of sun damage.

The non-double cultivar is grown all over the Meditteranean including the desert climates of North Africa. If this was a variegated cultivar, then it may need some protection from the sun.
