    This is a fast growing plant. Easy to grow.and very ornamental. The blooms last only one day.
    I find it extremely easy to propagate, starting cuttings in both water and medium. I grow only in containers and in order to keep it under control you must keep it trimmed. I have also found nearly ripe wood cuttings taken late Summer do very well. Ripe wood cuttings in the Fall also take hold. Jasminum Sambac can be propagated by layers but I have never tried that method. JB
