Amend the soil by adding composted cow manure and top soil (or organic peat moss) to the hole when you plant. Trim occasionally to shape - no hard pruning is necessary. Though this shrub is considered evergreen it may thin or even defoliate in colder winters, usually bouncing back in spring. Fertilize in spring, summer and autumn with a good granular fertilizer, adding supplemental feedings of bone meal and/or liquid fertilizer for heavier bloom.
- Light Needs: Full sun or Partial Shade
- Watering Needs: Water regularly but give the plant time to dry out a bit between waterings.
Jasmine plants are usually thought to be fragrance plants, but this beautiful jasmine has no fragrance. However, its delicate look, dark green leaves and bright white blooms work well in any landscape. White goes well with other colors in the garden and can draw attention to a focal point. And white-flowering shrubs like this one make great plants for shadier areas that have little or no color.
