My New Jasmine (ID Needed)!

Hi everyone,

I got my jasmine today at Wal-Mart! The tag has no scientific name on it, but my guess would be J. officinale?
If you do know what it is let me know! Thanks!

Here are a couple pictures I just took:

I looks like one I have
Jasminum sambac 'Maid of Orleans'

RE: My New Jasmine (ID Needed)!

The pic of the bud isn't clear but I'm inclined to agree with Ruth that it's a Maid of Orleans. It has a wonderful fragrance. Unlike J. officinale this is a tropical jasmine and has no cold tolerance. If you like this one you'd love Grand Duke of Tuscany.

Oops, wasn't looking for another houseplant! LOL

I'm glad that I got a jasmine anyway :) . Funny thing is that I was thinking of getting one of these earlier this year (Maid of Orleans). Good thing I'm getting rid of one of my hoyas!

Thank you both for identifying it! The tag on it did say no cold tolerance, and I was hoping it was wrong, but I'm not. I'm glad I posted it before I decided to put it in the ground! Better safe than sorry!
