Sambac or Arabian Jasmine has been cultivated for centuries, so long, in fact, that it's origins have been lost. Although Asia and India are the most likely native habitats.


There are more than 200 species of true jasmines. Of these Sambac Maid of Orleans is among the best known and easiest to grow. It is a scrambling bush with vine-like tendencies that will reach a mature size of over 6 feet if left to it's own devices. However, the Maid of Orleans Jasmine is not a highly aggressive grower, so it is easy to maintain at lower heights if desired.

Waxy, snow white flowers are about an inch or two in diameter,  are fragrant and are present almost continuously in warm climates.

The dried flowers are used by the Chinese to flavor tea, and are a favorite for leis and garlands. It is the National Flower of the Phillipines.

Direct planting of 4 inch starter size plants is not recommended, so for the best results with your new plant, we recommend it be repotted and allowed to grow larger before setting out in a tropical to subtropical landscape. 

When the new pot has filled with roots and the plant is larger, then here a few hints for successful growing in the landscape in Zones 9, 10, and 11.  can be grown as a potted plant indefinitely.

  • Plant in fertile well draining, slightly acidic soil soil in the full sun. Amend with high quality organic material as needed.
  • Locate in full sun to very lightly dappled shade.
  • Provide supplemental irrigation.
  • Feed a good quality, slow release, bloom boosting fertilize with the initial planting and twice yearly in the early Spring and early Fall thereafter. 
  • Supplement with a water soluble plant food in between feeding.
  • Prune lightly and often when young to encourage branching and after flowering to promote uniform shape and control size.
  • Protect from frost and freeze.
  • In Zones 8 and 9, plant early in the season and protect from freezing until very well established.
