Second question this is being sold as again maid of orleans but looks more to me like a possible Belle of India??

or are they all just varieties of maid of orleans? There are no shops selling Jasmine here in the uk so i have to go with ebay or european shops where a lot of misinformation comes into play :(

Hi Brian!

Nice book by the way. ;)

The first could be Mysore Mulli.

The second definitely looks like Belle of India.
If you don't already own it grab it! I love Belle's scent.

If you go through the thread I attached you'll see my pics of both varieties.

I'm not a jasmine expert though so I'm sure others will chime in. :)

Hi Robert

Haha was reading up on the Jasmine section :)

They do not come up often so think i will take the risk and hope its Belle of India


RE: jasmine I.D

The pic definitely looks like Belle unless they just stole it and are selling MOO instead.
The elongated buds will be the telltale sign! :)
