Stephanotis Vine is also known as Bridal Wreath and Bridal Veil Vine. Stephanotis floribunda is the best known of about 13 varieties. It is prized for its fragrant, long lasting waxy, creamy white blooms and is a frequent choice for bridal bouquets.
Despite its common name and fragrance, this plant is not a true jasmine. The common name is likely the result of the similarity in smell to Jasminum Officinale. Stephanotis scent is lighter, cleaner and lacks the cloying sweetness of jasmines and gardenias, as the scent becomes more pleasurable and not overpowering the longer one is exposed to it.
The scented, white flowers appear in the late spring and continue until early fall. The essential oil from this plant is used as an ingredient in expensive perfumes.
It is a tropical nature that cannot be grown in ground north of Zone 10 without cold protection. Stephanotis can be acclimated to grow indoors. Note, however, that very cool air conditioned environments can trigger semi-dormancy.
Not generally recommended for the novice gardeners, as it is a little fussy However, it provides a wonderful reward for the effort it takes.
