PANDOREA JASMINE

alt alt

Pandorea Jasmine are prolific climbers, clinging to just about any available support. Unlike many of the other varieties of Jasmine, their flowers offer very little scent but still remain quite attractive. They are slender and somewhat tubular, the lavendar Pandorea being rather "two-toned" having a darker throat. They have very soft and dense foliage providing a pretty back-drop while draped upon the trellis.

Regular wrapping will be necessary and after several wrappings, the result provides a visual treat. Masses of rich green foliage just seem to literally abound everywhere.

LIGHT / TEMPERATURE: The Pandorea Jasmine will need bright light including some direct sunlight, but in contrast they prefer relatively cooler temperatures (about 60 degrees is optimal). Once cooler temperatures set in, bring plant indoors and continue to keep in a high light setting. A warm south window would be just fine.

WATER: Water plentifully during the active growth period. Summer time conditions may require watering daily. Feed every few weeks.

Fall is a great time to do some pruning. We suggest cutting back significantly. You will notice rather slow growth during the winter, but as soon as the days begin to get longer these speedy growers will rebound rapidly. You can propagate from the cuttings you take at pruning time.

These plants are most often available on trellis' in 10" pots in late spring.
