Jasminum sambac is a fragrant species of jasmine that belongs to the family Oleaceae and is native to tropical Asia. Due to its sweet smell and beautiful appearance, the plant has become a national flower in Indonesia and the Philippines, where it is used in perfumery, in the preparation of natural tea, and also in the creation of various jewelry for clothes and hair.
Arabian jasmine grows as a small bush or creeper up to 10 feet (3m) tall, is seedless, and usually propagates asexually.
You can easily identify Jasminum sambac by its fragrant white flowers that later turn pink and can bloom year-round in the right climate. They are formed at the ends of branches, and they usually open at night. The fruits have a purple-black color and are berries.
As for the leaves, they are not as spectacular as the flowers and have a dark green color, a smooth texture, and an elongated shape.
