Description

Filling the air with the sweet smell of orange blossoms, orange jasmine (Murraya paniculata) is a welcome addition to any tropical garden. It is included within the Rutaceae (citrus) family and is known as orange jessamine, mock orange, chalcas, or satinwood. Orange jasmine is a great choice if you’re looking to attract bees, birds, or butterflies to your garden. Caring for Murraya orange jasmine is also surprisingly simple. This lovely plant is a compact evergreen shrub with oval, shiny, deep green leaves that can get up to 2 3/4 inches long, extending from interesting, gnarled branches. At maturity, which can take three to four years, it can grow to 8 to 12 feet tall and wide, creating a large, round shrub. New plants are best planted in spring. Clusters of small, fragrant flowers bloom in spring, followed by bright reddish-orange berries in summer. The flowers are very fragrant and smell like orange blossoms, and flowering will occur year-round. The red fruit is 1/2 to 1 inch long and is prized by birds.

Sunlight – Locate the plant where it receives morning sunlight and afternoon shade, or where it will get broken sunlight or dappled shade all day.

Watering – Water deeply whenever the top 2 inches of soil feels dry to the touch. As a general rule, once per week is about right.

Plant Care – Orange jasmine can be trained into a small tree and can be used as a hedge, which will require pruning often when it is young, since it grows rapidly.
