Where to Plant Jasmine: Shade or Sun?
Over 200 different types of jasmine exist throughout the world, according to the Chicago Botanic Garden. The plant’s flowers have a distinct, sweet odor and are a frequent fixture in bouquets.
- Jasmine plants can thrive when planted in full sunlight to partial shade. However, according to the Chicago Botanic Garden, jasmine will do best when exposed to at least four hours of direct sunlight per day.
- Although jasmine can be cultivated indoors, putting the plant outside during the summer is best for the plant.
- The Chicago Botanic Garden indicates a correlation between more sunlight and an increased jasmine bloom time. Growers have been able to increase the plant’s production by providing the jasmine plant with more than four hours of sunlight each day and pruning it carefully.
