Jasmine obsession

Living in Florida, of course I have some jasmine plants. It is required after all. At a recent plant swap I got two new ones. They are so wonderful, now I want every jasmine out there. Any suggestions on where to purchase unusual ones or anyone interested in trading rooted cuttings? I have six that I can think of right now.
Thanks,
Nancy

Kasie,
I got Grand Duke, Maid of Orleans and Belle of India. I also have night blooming jasmine, day blooming jasmine, Lakeview (orange) jasmine, confederate jasmine and another gorgeous Sambac, but I'm not sure which one it is. I've had it for a while.

There are a number of Florida nurseries that carry unusual jasmine varieties, including one that cannot be named here (initials are "TT") and gardino, both on the web. Kartuz in california has a good selection, though not all are available at any one time.

I currently grow 5 "jasmine" type plants, and I'm still looking for a true jasminum odoratissimum with decent fragrance, so I share the obsession!

Yes, TT is where I got all of my Jasminum Sambac. I think I have all varieties of this plant.

RE: Jasmine obsession

I have maid of orlean but I don't think it is big enuf to really smell from a distance. My night blooming is unbelievable!! Just a few flowers and I can smell when I open window to courtyard....don't want that one to get too big...will be too much! I also have babies of the pink (winter) which was too small to bloom last winter and another one...will have to find which one it is. Also have a jasmine out fron that is grown all over California...very common but don't know name?? Want to get more, too!!
