Care: Crepe Jasmine (Tabernaemontana divaricata) is not particular about soil. It responds to fertilizer by looking its best. Prune lightly as required to maintain a nice form. Crepe jasmine needs water during dry periods, but still requires good drainage.

This beautiful tropical shrub's rather fast rate of growth makes it a good plant for new gardens - especially shady ones where it provides structure and form. This plant's best feature is its delightful fragrance which earned it the common name of crepe jasmine, even though it is not related to the true jasmines. Plant one near the porch or patio to enjoy the lovely perfume which is most intense in the evening - the scent is vaporized from the flowers by the heat of day.
