Saw this at a local store but they didn't know the type.

Can anyone ID this? I'm wondering if it will be more of a bush type or vine type, sun requirements, and if the flowers are poisonous or not?

Thanks very much!

Hi Bing, Welcome!

Your plant does appear to be a shrub type Jasmine. It reminds me of Maid of Orleans (Jasminum sambac 'Maid of Orleans')

Looks like Jasminum sambac var. "Belle of India"

Quote wiki....".'Belle of India' - possesses flowers with a single or double layer of elongated petals"

Thanks, all!

Silversurfer, I do think Belle of India looks the closest. Main thing is that it's a sambac, so I have a better sense of how to care for it.

Appreciate the help!
