I have been propagating both standard and regular Jasminoides 'Aimee' for three years.
The flowers can get as large as 3 to 5 inches in size. You can cut them and if maintained properly they can last as long as a week as cut flowers in floral designs.

I have found the following: The speed of growth of these plants is fast. They like a lot of water and do better if you let them get a wee bit dry between watering but they may not get completely dry or the leaves will turn and drop, even if dry a very short time. They love full sun if they have plenty of water daily. Normally they like sun and partial shade. I grow only in containers. One of the most enjoyable plants I have ever grown.
