Description

This slightly fragrant Jasmine commonly known as Italian Jasmine was actually introduced to Italy and many Baltic countries from its native range of South Iran through Asia to Central China.  It is a semi-evergreen shrub with mounds of slender stems of dark green leaves reaching as much as 7 feet high. Though it prefers well-drained soil it tolerates a range of conditions and grows in sun to part shade and can be heat and drought tolerant.  The yellow tubular flowers bloom in summer and are followed by glossy black berries in the fall.
