After the Summer and Spring, I decided I wanted a change and ordered just a plain old non-orchid house plant so I ordered a Murraya paniculata which I has a few yrs. and certainly enjoyed. Since I am often a doofus, I placed it outside in the blast furnace of a MS summer without letting it acclimate and it died.
I'm excited about this one a I've missed it. It takes a moderately heavy pruning without pouting too much plus it improves the shape and the number of blossoms.
Has anyone else had any experience with this plant? Would like to hear.
Thanks, Kevin51 Big Grin

Ohhh...I love jasmines :)))
They hate me though...or my climate...I can never get them to survive through a Canadian winter. The house gets too dry during 8 months of furnace heat.

Hello Three Gardeners (Lee Anne). I'm very partial to the name Lee for some reason. LOL. es
Thanks for taking the time to reply. I appreciate it.
Fortunately mine did fine 'til I put it out in the sun much too quickly and much too late in the season..
Yes!!! The scent o jasmine is irrestible,
Like a kid at Christmas, I can hardly wait 'til mine comes in.
What I really liked about the Murraya was its quick succession of blooms. It never disappointed me. Logees did caution me to watch for root disease if grown too cool or too damp. I still think I'd have it today had I not changed its location. But that's gardening, isn't it? To change change around. Sometime with good results and not so good ones a other times.
If I start feeling really adventuresome, I'll order the other Murraya even thought I'm no curry lover.
Until later, Lee Hurray!
