Grand Duke of Tuscany is an extremely fragrant, evergreen climber which can grow up to 2 meters high and 2 meters wide in ideal tropical conditions. The leaves are ovate and a glossy, dark green and they may appear in opposite pairs. The intensely fragrant, white, waxy flowers resemble miniature gardenias and appear in clusters. The plant blooms in summer and may have flowers throughout the year in consistently warm climates. Jasmine sambac is ideally suited to tropical and temperate areas, but does well in most areas of Australia. It may be frost affected in some areas, but will generally bounce back.

Product Description

Jasminum sambac

The plant is widely grown for its beauty and fragrance with the flowers used in teas, perfumes and oils. The flower buds can be harvested in the early morning according to size and firmness. It is important to make sure they are white, rather than still green, because the oils responsible for the fragrance are not as well developed. Open buds have already started to lose their oil content and are less fragrant, so many more would be needed to extract the same volume of oil.
