{Jasminum Sambac - Jasmine Grand Duke of Tuscany}

Last year we bought a new Jasminum Sambac - Jasmine Grand Duke of Tuscany from +Logee's Greenhouses and this year it did yield its first fragrant blossoms.
August 9, this beauty opened with yet another bud underneath.
Look what heavy rain did in just one day... 
Waiting 3 more days did yield another double blooming, highly fragrant beauty.
They are so lovely!
We hope it will look bigger next year!

  1. It looks beautiful Mariette, it is a vigorous climber like some that can get a bit evasive.
    I love the perfume of jasmine.

    1. Dearest Kay,
      There are climbing jasmines indeed but not this double blooming and slow growing cultivar. We used to have a semi-evergreen pink blooming jasmine against our gazebo and that was quite invasive. The painter cut it off, without asking us... and since it was so ugly ever since, we totally removed it. But this variety has a much stronger, heavenly fragrance!
      Hugs and happy weekend to you and enjoy lovely spring weather.

  4. This is definitely like what we have on our balcony. A friend came last nite and was admiring the blooms. He said he tried to grow some in Kentucky but the plants couldn't survive because of the cold. He thought ours were from Egypt and Syria. The plant guy told us they were Lebanese and Egyptian. Definitely from this area, of course, where such plants are able to grow. Not Kuwait, which is a desert country. Have a good Friday. Tammy

      So happy for you that you enjoy your fragrant Jasmine Grand Duke of Tuscany on the balcony! The temperatures in your region are right, as long as you can water adequately. We have to keep them inside our greenhouse during winter as they absolutely cannot handle frost!
      Jasmine or in Persian Yasameen ("gift from God") may have derived from Persia...
      Enjoy your Friday!

  6. Jasmin liebe ich auch sehr, liebe Mariette. Bei uns bezeichnet man allerdings fälschlicherweise den weißblühenden Pfeifenstrauch als Jasmin

    http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europ%C3%A4ischer_Pfeifenstrauch

    Ansonsten gibt es in unseren Breiten eher den gelbblühenden Jasmin.

    dann ist es bei Euch aber noch sehr warm, liebe Mariette! Wir haben allerdings tagsüber auch teilweise noch 25 Grad gehabt. Trotzdem fällt nun das Laub mehr und mehr ...
    Heute ist es aber wieder grau-in-grau. Doch mit 13 Grad auch nicht kalt.

    Danke, daß Du meinen neuen/alten Blog gefunden hast!

    Liebe Grüße
    Sara

    1. Liebe Sara,
      Ja diese tropische und duftende Jasminen sind sehr schön! De Pfeifenstrauch nennt man hier Mock Orange und es ist ein Philadelphus und in die Hydrangeaceae Familie!
      Die gelbblühende Jasmin ist die Winterjasmin oder Jasminum Nudiflorum, die aber kein Duft hat!
      Bei uns war es Gestern, sowie es Heute, Morgen und Übermorgen auch wird; 32°C also haben wir wirklich super Wetter auf unsere Breite!
      Liebe und sonnige Grüsse,
      Mariette

    2. Interessant, liebe Mariette. Mock Orange habe ich noch nie gehört. ;-) So lernt man immer weiter dazu. Danke für die Aufklärung! Der Philadelphus duftet auch ganz wunderbar.
      Und einen, nein zwei Winterjasmin habe ich auch und hoffe, daß sie nächstes Mal erstmalig blühen werden.
      Bei uns war es heute auch sehr schön, wir hatten auch noch über 20°C - immerhin ... es war eher spätsommerlich. Das war auch nicht so gut für das Drachen-Festival, welches bei uns stattfand. Die großen Drachen konnten leider nicht starten ... eher windstill ...

      Liebe Grüße
      Sara

    3. Liebe Sara,
      Ja, so hat jedes Land seine eigene Benamung und deswegen gehe ich gerne aus vom botanischer Name um sicher zu sein!
      Schade das die Drachen nicht fliegen konnten weil es windstill war...

      Thank you! Just a pity that the rain browned the first flowers... and since it is a young plant, we did not have that many blossoms to photograph yet. The fragrance is heavenly indeed; wish I could have that always on my bedside table; would make for sweet dreams!
      Happy weekend to you as well.

  9. Dearest Mariette; Your beautiful Jasminum Sambac truly must have great fragrance♡♡♡ So sorry for the bad weather you had this year. Yes, let's hope next year's great bigger flower♫♫♫

    ps. oh, gula melaka (palm sugar) sounds healthier. And I'm happy that my post helped you bring back sweet memory, my friend.
    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

    1. Dearest Miyako,
      Thank you and indeed the rain did ruin some of our blossoms this summer. Never mind, the plants look strong and healthy though. Well, this flower never will be bigger as this jasmine variety only yields flowers that are 2.5 cm across and no more.
      Indeed, the gula melaka is indeed healthier due to its lower glycemic index and even more so the: Gula Java Coconut blossom sugar
      A big difference is also that it completely dissolves and makes for such smooth sweets like you showed us. Indeed that did bring back sweet memories! Loved the sweets at the end of your post: Sky Watch and Fence
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    ich bin überzeugt, dass der Jasminstrauch im nächsten Jahr schon viel größer ist - hast du auch einen Duftjasmin? Einfach herrlich, wenn man im Garten daran vorüber geht -

    hab ein schönes Wochenende -

      Dieser wächst nicht so ganz in einem Strauch und es ist eine tropische Art die im Winter auch drinnen ins Gewächshaus muss. Dieser duftet mehr als alle andere, er ist auch ganz doppelt und die Blüten sind bis 2.5 cm. Es ist ein Traum.
      Auch für euch ein sonniges und schönes Wochenende.

  12. Dear Mariette,
    Your Jasmine is beautiful! I can imagine this lovely bloom tucked behind an ear for a special occasion. I hope you get many more blooms to enjoy next year. We cannot keep Jasmine over the winter, but I have sometimes grown it as an annual when it is available. My very first dog, when we were newlyweds, was named Jasmine - a pretty Border Collie. Enjoy your weekend, my Dear!
    Hugs xo

      Thank you and this would yield perfect material for making perfume...
      We cannot keep them either over the winter, so all pots have to be brought inside the greenhouse.
      Lovely name for a sweet dog! Fond memories...

  18. Dearest Mariette,
    I just love the fragrance of the grandduka or fooli (φούλι) as we call it in Greece. I do have two very large pots just beneath my kitchen window and I enjoy the smell as soon as I open it in the morning. The plants have obviously found their best position there as they have become very tall and they behave as climbers. I have also taken cuttings from them which have produced roots in water and I am about to plant them in compost.
    I will post a photo on your FB as soon as I am back home ( I am at my mother's today, like every Sunday).
    Lots of hugs to you!

      So glad that you too enjoy this exotic jasmine. All jasmines are lovely for their fragrance and if they are healthy they can grow up strong and more vigorous.
      So sweet of you that you go every Sunday to your Mother! We just called with Mom & Dad, using Pieter's new iPhone 4S. He did not want the newest versions... for what?
      Hugs,

      These are the best in the world! When we first worked for Pond's India, we received a welcome garland and it had sandal wood and jasmines... So heavenly; so we got hooked! Logee's sells tiny plants that need to be babied but it's worth it. We treasure these exotic tropical jasmines and this is such a rare double version!
