Jasminum sambac 'Grand Duke Supreme'

Producing exceptionally fragrant, very double , large flowers , to 2" across are composed of up to what could be nearly one hundred individual creamy white petals in an often slightly looser, yet still densely packed, flower form than that of the more common Grand Duke of Tuscany.

This is a highly sought after and rewarding plant that was shared with us by the late Asma Khan and was one of her most prized forms of this true Jasmine species. Grand Duke Supreme Jasmine sports deep green foliage that acts as the perfect foil for the bright creamy white flowers. Item# 11027.
