  1. Hi Jolanda

    Thanks for visiting Plantbook.

    Sorry, we’re still busy populating the information for this plant.

    It should be planted no closer than 4m from any structure to avoid potential damage.

    Depending on your area, it grows between 4-10m tall.

    It’s not toxic to animals.

    Flourish!

  3. Hi Neill

    Thanks for visiting our site.

    We don’t have any experience in growing Jasminum multipartitum as a bonsai. The requirements, however should be similar – a well-drained medium and a semi-shade planting position with regular applicaitons of compost.

    Flourish!

  4. Hi. Do you have any suggestions for growing this plant in a pot? I grow bonsai and have a few of these but they respond a little differently to my other trees.
    Thanks
