Your jasmine may be suffering from scale insects or possibly powdery mildew. I suggest you take a sample to your County Extension Office for diagnosis and control recommendations. There is usually not a charge for that service.

The leaf drop could be due to the white scaly powder issue or to soil that gets too wet or stays too dry for a while.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
