Night Blooming Jasmine

Zone Winchester, CA 92596 | Anonymous added on September 24, 2018 | Answered

I bought some Night Blooming Jasmine July of this year. I put them into large pots and put them on my patio in full Sun Back. It's leaves got burned the first day. I immediately moved them into the shade along side my home. They recovered nicely and are now starting to bloom. It's much cooler now, so I moved them into the sun today to see how they will do. I think that bringing them home from the store and putting them in full direct sun was a shock. We live in Winchester CA, and although warm here, it can frost a time or two in the winter. I have two questions: 1). Can I put them in full sun now and will they do okay year around there? 2). Is Night Blooming Jasmine a winter or summer variety?

Ok, there are a few things you should know. These plants can only tolerate a few hours a day of direct sunlight. Really I wouldn't put them in full sun. They would rather be in filtered light.

Also, if they don't flower... It is likely that they need more cold temperatures. Not enough hours of chill, and that will prevent them from flowering properly.
