This night-blooming shrub provides an interesting backdrop in the garden, gardeners generally plant it for the fragrance.
Outdoors, night blooming jasmine likes sun, but not too much. Planting it in an eastern facing garden where it receives some shade during the afternoon is ideal. The plant also likes water, but not too much. Too much water can rot the roots and encourage mold.
Night blooming jasmine is a tropical, evergreen shrub that is famous for its sweet smell. The look of the plant is unpretentious. It has clusters of tubular flowers and pointy, dark green leaves. But if you walk by the plant during the evening hours, you will get a whiff of a sultry, sweet scent that is distinctive to this shrub.
The jasmine should be pruned when flowering has finished. Pruning in September is ideal to promote lush new growth and correct the shape. The jasmine can get to 12 feet in height if not pruned down. The plant can also be cut back to 3 feet from the ground annually to force new healthy shoots and prolific blooms.
