Few vines rival jasmine for beauty and fragrance. This easy-to-grow climber produces beautiful clusters of starry flowers you can smell from feet away. Most jasmines bloom in late winter or early spring, but some such as Arabian jasmine will flower throughout the year.
Most jasmines do best in full sun or part shade and moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Gardeners sometimes grow jasmine as a houseplant in areas where the vines aren't hardy.
