Jasmine Asian

Jasmine Asian


Description: Asian Jasmine features small, oval-shaped leaves that are shiny and dark green in color. The leaves are arranged opposite each other along creeping stems, forming a dense mat of foliage. In spring and summer, Asian Jasmine may produce small, inconspicuous white flowers that emit a sweet fragrance, particularly in the evening. The plant is prized for its ability to provide year-round greenery and ground coverage, making it a popular choice for landscaping projects and erosion control.

Size: Asian Jasmine is a low-growing ground cover that typically reaches heights of 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 centimeters) and spreads of 3 to 6 feet (0.9 to 1.8 meters) at maturity. However, the size of individual plants and the extent of their spread may vary depending on growing conditions, soil fertility, and cultivation practices. Asian Jasmine forms a dense, weed-suppressing carpet of foliage that is well-suited to planting under trees, along borders, and in other areas where turf grass may struggle to establish.

Best Growing Zones: Asian Jasmine is native to East Asia and is well-suited to regions with warm, humid climates. It is hardy in USDA plant hardiness zones 7 through 10, where temperatures rarely drop below 0°F (-18°C) in zone 7. Asian Jasmine thrives in full sun to partial shade and is tolerant of a wide range of soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soils, as long as they are well-drained. It is also tolerant of coastal conditions, including salt spray and sandy soils.

Soil and Sun Requirements: Asian Jasmine prefers well-drained soil with good fertility and a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (around 6.0 to 7.0). It thrives in full sun to partial shade, though it may perform best in partial shade in regions with hot, intense sunlight. Adequate sunlight is essential for promoting dense growth and maintaining vibrant green foliage. Asian Jasmine is tolerant of drought once established but benefits from regular watering during dry periods, especially in the first growing season.

Maintenance: Asian Jasmine is relatively low-maintenance and requires minimal care to thrive. It is drought-tolerant once established and may only require supplemental watering during prolonged dry spells. Prune as needed to maintain the desired shape and size, removing any dead, damaged, or overgrown foliage. Asian Jasmine can be mowed or trimmed to keep it tidy and encourage dense growth. Fertilize lightly in spring with a balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and maintain vibrant foliage.
