Starry wild jasmine, the common name of Jasminum multipartitum, suggests correctly that this is a desirable garden plant. The somewhat scrambling habit, dark green foliage, waxy white petals and pink or maroon outer surfaces of the flower tubes all add to the appeal. The aromatic aspect of the flowers is enhanced in the evening. The spring and summer flowers are followed by shiny, juicy and edible berries that are initially green, later bluish black. The habitat lies in the Eastern Cape, Kwazulu-Natal and inland to Gauteng in wooded areas and bush-covered slopes. Pollination is conducted by insects including hawk moths. The plant grows in sun or semi-shade, is somewhat drought resistant and mild cold tolerant (www.plantzafrica.com; www.kumbulanursery.co.za).
