The Jasminum sambac is a common variety of jasmine, characterized as an evergreen shrub or vine-like shrub that can grow up to 1 meter in height. Both its leaves and flowers are round in shape.

It has a long blooming period and yields abundant flowers. The buds resemble pearls, and the blossoms are similar to small lotus flowers, offering an intense fragrance. The Pearl Jasmine holds high value for both ornamental and practical purposes.

Among the double-petal jasmine varieties, the Pearl Jasmine is relatively easy to care for, having a long flowering period that can last from early summer to late autumn.

I. Basic Introduction

Jasminum sambac

Common jasmine varieties include the climbing jasmine, woody jasmine, Pearl Jasmine, golden jasmine, and foreign jasmine. Their double-petal flowers do not show stamens, and the branches are also delicate.

The buds are pearl-like, the blossoms resemble small lotus flowers, and they have the most intense fragrance, making them a treasure among jasmines. Their maintenance methods are similar to those of ordinary varieties.

This is not a Pearl Jasmine, but a Tiger Head Jasmine! The Tiger Head Jasmine has pointed leaves, often appearing in pairs of three, and a large flat floral disc resembling a lotus seat.

In contrast, the Pearl Jasmine has round leaves, and its flower shape is similar to that of a cabbage, also being round. The difference between the two is quite noticeable.

Share is Caring.
