Description 

The double or clustered flower of Dwarf Ruffled Edge Crape Jasmine is gorgeous, about 5 cm across with ruffled edges and has a slight fragrance. The dark green, shiny leaves are about 15cm long and 3-4cm wide and form a lovely contrast with the pure white clustered flowers.

The shrub generally grows to a height of 2 ft. However, it can also grow into a small tree with a thin, crooked stem. Like many members of the Oleander family, stems exude milky latex when broken. The large shiny leaves are deep green.

Crape jasmine blooms in spring but flowers appear sporadically all year. The waxy blossoms are white five-petaled pinwheels that are borne in small clusters on the stem tips.

Environment

Crepe jasmines thrive outdoors in warm climates&  needs a well drained soil. The plant grows in both full sun or partial shade.  The plant prefers a little acidic soil.

Feed once monthly with a balanced organic fertiliser. If the soil is very alkaline, crepe jasmine care will include more frequent applications of fertilizer.

Landscape Use 

Hardy plant suited to rockeries, borders and pots.
