'Grand Duke of Tuscany'
Oleaceae (Jamine family)
It takes both sun or shade but loves partial shade and very well drained and moist soil. Requires frequent pruning for denser shape, otherwise becomes leggy.
Butt Mogra is a slow growing Jasmine but grandest of them all with the largest flowers. Up to 1.5" double flowers look like miniature roses. This tall growing shrub has Gardenia type flowers as large as carnations. Due to certain phenomena the older plants seem to be even more fascinating in providing flowers of different shapes and sizes on the same plant at the same time. The flowers do not seem to drop off and in most cases will dry right on the plant. This bushy compact plant needs a little more special attention than other Jasmines. Butt Mogra is also used to flavor the jasmine tea and making perfumes. A perfect houseplant, Butt Mogra is a beautiful fragrant ever bloomer for your home and garden. Variety "Grand Duke Tuscany " has bigger flowers and elongated leaves.
