Pandorea jasminoides

A fairly vigorous, evergreen climber, native to Australia; despite what the name suggests, this plant does not resemble jasmine at all, in this case jasminoides derives from the fact that the flowers of this species give off a scent similar to that of jasmine.
Beautiful creeper, with a very elegant bearing, with long fickle stems, with which it wraps around whatever support it has available; evergreen, this variety has large oval leaves, there are also varieties with variegated leaves, but generally the foliage is dark green, shiny and slightly waxy.
Throughout the summer it produces large trumpet flowers, light in color, with a bright pink throat, delicately scented. There are varieties with yellow, orange and white flowers, but in the nursery the pinkish variety is more commonly found.
Fears frost slightly, is therefore particularly suitable as a climber for a terrace, or for a flowerbed near the south wall of the house.

Growing Pandorea

In the places of origin this plant develops in a good woodland, rich and slightly sandy, where the water flows easily, without leaving harmful ponds.
We can easily grow our specimen in pots, since the root system is not huge; being a climber, however, we must remember that we must guarantee the plant a large container; in this way it will also survive winter frost more easily.
As with most flowering plants, this variety also needs a good dose of direct insolation, specimens grown in the shade tend to produce very few flowers; therefore we plant our plant in a very sunny place, sheltered from the strong wind, which could ruin the stems.
During the winter the plant can withstand short periods of little intense gel; if we fear that the winter is too rigid let's grow the plant in a pot, so that it can be moved to a sheltered place during the coldest months; however, since it is a creeper, with a good apparatus of branches, it will be difficult to move the plants a few years; in general, pandores in northern Italy are sheltered by a terrace, so that in winter they enjoy the shelter of the house. If possible in very rigid periods it is good to cover the entire plant with the woven fabric, which guarantees a temperature above zero.


These climbers need regular watering, whenever the soil is dry; during the summer months the waterings will be very frequent, and from March to September we will also add fertilizer for flowering plants to the water used for watering; with the arrival of cold watering will become more and more sporadic. Being an evergreen plant, we avoid leaving the soil completely dry for very long periods of time even during the cold months, especially if we are not in the presence of intense frost.

Pandorea - Pandorea jasminoides: Pandoraea

There are many existing species, widespread in Australia, Malaysia and New Zealand; in the nursery in Europe, besides the pandorea jasminoides, we can find quite easily only another species, Pandorea pandorana.
It is a vigorous climber, which produces in summer long clusters of magnificent trumpet flowers, pendulous, white, pink, yellow.
Like Pandorea jasminoides, Pandorea pandorana also fears temperatures below 5 ° C, but if we live in a place with a mild winter climate, or if we have a place sheltered from the frost in which to cultivate it, it is certainly a very beautiful plant, with spectacular flowers.
