Jasminum humile, linn. (J. revolittiim, Sims. J. Wallichidnum Lindl. J. flavum, Sieb. J. triumphans, Hort.). Fig. 2009. A diffuse shrub, in the open ground in the S. reaching 20 ft. and requiring support, but in glasshouses usually grown as a pot-bush: branches glabrous, angled: lvs. alternate, odd-pinnate (rarely reduced to 1 1ft.), the lateral lfts. 1-3 pairs, all lfts. thickish and acuminate, and more or less revolute on the edges, varying from oblong to oblong-lanceolate to oblong-rotund: fls. bright yellow, in open clusters; calyx-teeth very short; corolla-tube 3/4-l in. long, usually considerably exceeding the mostly obtuse and reflexing lobes. Trop. Asia. B.M. 1731. B.R. 178; 350; 1409. L.B.C. 10:966.—Apparently the commonest jasmine in American glasshouses, usually known as J.revolutum. It is hardy in the open as far north as Maryland. Lvs. thick and evergreen. Needs a cool house if grown under glass. Summer and fall bloomer. J. Reevesii, Hort., probably belongs to this species. Some horticulturists distinguish a J. humile from J. revolutum, the former said to be of smaller size, less floriferous, and fls. smaller and scarcely fragrant.
