|Scientific Name||Jasminum laurifolium|
|Common Name||Angelwing Jasmine|
|Info||"Angelwing jasmine is an evergreen or semi-evergreen vine or shrub with sweetly fragrant, snow-white, pinwheel shaped flowers to almost 2 in (5.1 cm) across. The flowers start out as purplish buds and retain some pinkish-purple on the calyx. They bloom at night from late spring and throughout the summer. The leaves are glossy, leathery, elliptic to lance-shaped. They're about 2 in (5.1 cm) long and arranged in pairs opposite each other on the stem. This is a fast-growing, twining vine, that becomes woody with age. It can grow to 20 ft (6.1 m) long but in the garden is often trimmed as a bushy shrub that gets little more than 2-4 ft (0.6-1.2 m) tall."|
