Our fully-budded plants open their sweetly fragrant, white flowers in midwinter. We offer a bushy plant set in a 8" clay pot with a shiny, candy-apple red foil finish. We ship your order with complete care instructions.
In response to concerns from some of our customers, we have spent a great deal of time fine-tuning our shipping methods. Instead of shipping out a portion of our plants in late fall to get ahead of the cold weather, we are holding them back and allowing the buds to grow a little larger while keeping a close eye on the weather conditions. Our goal is for all of our customers to enjoy the white star-shaped blossoms and wonderful fragrance in their homes or offices.
For long bloom, Jasmine prefer cooler temperatures and bright indirect light. Make sure to water your Jasmine when only the top half inch of soil is dry.
Jasminum polyanthum is a handsome, subtropical vine whose dark green leaves provide a perfect backdrop for its January display of elegant and exquisitely fragrant white flowers. This is the perfume of the tropics, a rich, sweet scent that will fill a house or lightly carry through a southern garden.
Please note that some care will be required to be certain of flowers in the future. For more information on growing Jasmine, click on Growing Guide.
WEATHER PERMITTING - Working with Mother Nature
In our business, we work closely with Mother Nature. In the colder months when we stipulate that an item is shipped “weather permitting”, that means temperatures outside our shipping facility in northwestern Connecticut and along the shipping route must be warm enough for tender plants to survive in unheated delivery trucks. Our practice of waiting for windows of milder weather may result in the occasional delay, but our customers tend to appreciate the care we take to make certain their plants arrive in the very best possible condition. Questions? Don’t hesitate to call our customer service staff at 1-800-411-6159.
HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.
WHEN WE SHIP
We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.
We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

The cultural requirements of Jasmine (Jasminum polyanthum) are simple but exacting. When your plant arrives, put it in a cool room and set it in a window that receives bright light but little or no direct sun. Flowers will open and last longer with cooler home temperatures.
Watering: Water only when the top half inch of the potting mix is dry to the touch; Jasmine won't tolerate soggy potting mix. If these conditions are met, flowering generally begins in late January or early February.
Jasmines are also sensitive to the dryness created by radiators, hot-air vents, and wood-burning stoves. Here are some ways to increase the humidity around your plants:
