Jasmine (Jasminum polyanthum)

Also known as: white jasmine, Chinese jasmine, winter jasmine

Profile

Impact

Jasmine has escaped cultivation as a garden ornamental. It climbs rapidly into the treecanopy and covers vegetation at all levels, blocking light and restricting the growth and regeneration of native species. Its weight may also bring down trees and it is a potentially a serious weed of rainforests and riparian areas.

Spread

Seeds are rarely produced, the plant spreads mainly by its stems and suckering.    

Description

White jasmine is a vigorous fast-growing evergreen climber. It is popular garden plant with white and highly scented flowers.
