Abstract:

For the utilization of lesser known jasmine species in crop improvement programmes or for other purposes such as commercial cultivation for its flowers or growing as garden plants, insight on floral biology of the species is an essential prerequisite. Characterization of phenology aids in identification of year-round cultivable species of jasmine promising blooming throughout the year. Floral biology and flowering pattern of five lesser known Jasminum species namely, J. calophyllum, J. flexile, J. multiflorum (Pink), J. nitidum and J. rigidum were documented which can be of immense help for commercial jasmine cultivation as well as for jasmine crop improvement programmes.


Keywords: Jasminum spp., Jasminum calophyllum, J. flexile, J. multiflorum, J. nitidum, J. rigidum, Year round flowering, Fruit set.
