Planting and care

plant care may require a bit of effort, but the results are well worth the work. Not all plants are fragrant, but the most common and hardy do produce a sweet, carrying fragrance. Common is a vine and has larger glossy green leaves than Royal. Both can survive in temperate climates if they are planted in a sheltered area.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun to part shade Well-drained soil Medium 60 to 70 degrees F Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Parijat

  • Every leaf has a growth bud, so removing old flower blossoms encourages the plant to make more flowers instead of using the energy to make seeds. Clean away from around the base of the rosebushes any trimmed debris that can harbor disease and insects.

Typical uses of Parijat

Special features: Where winter hardy, orange jessamine is often grown as a hedge or screen. Interesting in containers or planters. For areas north of USDA Zone 10, plants must be overwintered indoors.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
