Jasmine Landscaping Plants
Beautiful, blooming jasmine landscaping plants add a splash of colour and a sweet fragrance to any landscape. When in bloom, some jasmine landscaping plants produce a potent fragrance that is unmistakable and unavoidable. They are popular landscaping plants around the world but especially so in Asian countries. There are approximately 200 species of jasmine, some of which have deep cultural significance in Asia, India and Indonesia. The word jasmine originated from the Arabic word “yasmin,” which means “gift from God”. Growing jasmine landscaping plants isn’t difficult. You need well-drained, moist soil that’s moderately fertile. Place the plant here it will receive at least four hours of full sunlight daily, and plant it between June and November. Each plant needs at least 8 feet of space for healthy root growth. In spring, add 5-10-5 fertilizer to the soil.
During the summer, water the plant regularly but take care not to saturate the roots. Dwarf jasmine landscaping plants works well in rock gardens or may be used as a topiary piece. If you have limited space, this plant only reaches 1 foot tall. Italian jasmine could become a focal point for a yard, growing 20 feet tall and 10 feet wide at maturity. Add winter jasmin into an ever-blooming landscape design, and use showy jasmine in sloping gardens or as means of naturalizing water features.
