Jasminum officinale, linn. (J. poeticum, Hort.). Jessamine. Fig. 2008. Long, slender grower requiring support, but scarcely self-climbing, glabrous or very nearly so: lvs. opposite, odd-pinnate, the lateral lfts. 2-3 pairs and rhomboid-oblong-acute, the terminal one longer: fls. white, 2—10 in terminal more or less leafy clusters; calyx-teeth linear, 1/4 -2/3 in. long, or sometimes as long as the rather short corolla-tube; corolla-lobes 4 or 5, oblong, more or less involute on the margins. Kashmir, 3,000- 9,000 ft., Persia, and now widely distributed. B.M. 31. R.H. 1878, p. 428.—Long cult. The glossy foliage and fragrant white summer-blooming fls. render the plant very attractive in the S., where it is hardy. With protection it will stand as far N. as Philadelphia. var. affine, Nichols. (J. affine, Hort.), is a form with larger fls. R.H. 1878, p. 428. There are double-fld. forms; also with yellow- and silver-edged lvs.
