Pinwheel Jasmine is a fragrant semi tropical evergreen shrub that is native to tropical Asia.  It is known by several other common names, including Crepe Jessamine, and Butterfly Jasmine or Gardenia.  This plant is not a true jasmine, but is commonly called a jasmine because the flowers are jasmine like and have a similar, but lighter fragrance.

The flowers are five petaled pinwheels that are an elegant pure white with a yellow eye that appear in cycles  year round, but the most profuse bloom is in mid to late summer.

Pinwheel Jasmine matures at about 6 ft. tall and has a horizontal open growth habit.  The leaves are elongated and deep glossy green.  For the deepest green color and gloss, locate pinwheel jasmine in a location that is lightly shaded in the afternoon.
