Jasmine

True jasmines belong to the genus Jasminum. However, the common name "jasmine" has also been applied to a variety of other plants outside the genus, usually because their white fragrant flowers and perhaps a similar growth habit. An example popular in Qld is the "Star Jasmine", Trachelospermum

Other plants have been assigned jasminoides in their scientific name, meaning "like jasmine" e.g. Pandorea jasminoides.

This page is intended to cover mainly Jasminum and Trachelospermum, which Queenslanders widely know as Jasmines.

Note that some jasmines exhibit weedy tendencies in some parts of the country (see links below)
