Crape Layered Jasmine
Crape Layered Jasmine is a fantastic hedge plant that is dichotomously branched and grows to a height of 1.5–1.8 meters (5–6 feet). The huge lustrous leaves are around 15 cm (6 in) long and 5 cm (2 in) wide and are deep green. On the stem tips, waxy blooms grow in tiny clusters. The (single) blooms feature the distinctive ‘pinwheel’ shape found in other Apocynaceae families, such as Vinca and Nerium.
Both single and double-flowered varieties are grown, with white flowers on both. Heat tolerant plant. Flowers emerge irregularly throughout the year, but the plant blooms most in the spring. The blooms have a pleasant aroma to them. The pinwheel-shaped blossoms’ lovely aroma is strongest in the evening. At the edge of a patio, it creates a lush tropical screen.
