Jasminum (/ˈdʒæzmɨnəm/), commonly known as jasmines, is a genus of shrubs and vines in the olive family (Oleaceae). It contains around 200 species native to tropical and warm temperate regions of the Old World. Jasmines are widely cultivated for the characteristic fragrance of their flowers.

 

Jasmine tea is consumed in China, where it is called jasmine-flower tea (茉莉花茶; pinyin: mò lì huā chá). Jasminum sambac flowers are also used to make jasmine tea, which often has a base of green tea, but sometimes an Oolong base is used. Flowers and tea are "mated" in machines that control temperature and humidity. It takes four hours or so for the tea to absorb the fragrance and flavour of the jasmine blossoms, and for the highest grades, this process may be repeated as many as seven times. Because the tea has absorbed moisture from the flowers, it must be refired to prevent spoilage. The spent flowers may or may not be removed from the final product, as the flowers are completely dry and contain no aroma. Giant fans are used to blow away and remove the petals from the denser tea leaves. If present, they simply add visual appeal and are no indication of the quality of the tea.

 

In Okinawa, Japan, jasmine tea is known as sanpin cha (さんぴん茶). (Source: Wikipedia)

©2005-2009 AlexEdg AllEdges (www.alledges.com)

 

Taken at Nursery store while shopping for some plants for our garden this year. I bought few plants and just waiting for a good weather to plant them.

 

Week 119 in Poetography ... a weekly inspiration. This week theme is about "You."

 

I chose the Jasmine for this theme. Jasmine or Sampaguita as we call it is my favourite flowers growing up and still is for each beauty and lovely scents. It also brings wonderful memories when I was in Grade six. I used to make garlands of these flowers and then bring it to my Aunt who used to own a store in the market,..she then sells it for little money. In return and gratitude, she always gave me my favourite Filipino desserts.

***********************************************************************************

Jasminum sambac was adopted by the Philippines as the National flower on 1 February 1934 via Proclamation No. 652 issued by AmericanGovernor-General Frank Murphy. Filipinos string the flowers into leis, corsages, and sometimes crowns. These garlands are available as loose strings of blossoms or as tight clusters of buds, and are commonly sold by poor children outside churches and near intersections.

 

Sampaguita garlands are usually placed on religious images and photographs of the deceased on altars, and is presented to visitors, dignitaries, and occasionally to graduating students as a form of bestowing honour, veneration and accolade.

 

Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone! HSS!!

 

☙•Thanks for your visits, kind comments and faves. Always greatly appreciated.

Winter jasmine (Jasminum nudiflorum)

is a slender, deciduous shrub native to China. It grows to 3 m (10 ft) tall and wide, with arching green shoots and opposite, pinnate, dark green leaves. Each leaf is divided into three oval-oblong leaflets which are about 3 cm long.

As its name suggests, in the Northern Hemisphere winter jasmine flowers from November to March. The solitary flowers, often appearing on the bare stems (hence the Latin nudiflorum, literally "naked flower") have six petals and are bright yellow, or white, about 1 cm across, appearing in the leaf axils. It likes full sun or partial shade and is hardy.

J. nudiflorum is valued by gardeners as one of the few plants that are in flower during the winter months. It is frequently trained against a wall to provide extra warmth and shelter, but also lends itself to ground cover. It tolerates hard pruning and should be pruned in spring immediately after flowering; regular pruning will help to prevent bare patches. It can also be grown as a bonsai and is very tolerant of the wiring methods. It can be propagated using the layering technique.

This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

NOW, MY FRIENDS,

USUALLY ON MY TERRACE IT BLOOMS IN FEBRUARY, BUT THIS YEAR IN MY REGION IN ITALY WINTER, TILL NOW, IS VERY MILD..

ONE MORE OBSERVATION:

THIS PLANT GIVES FIRST FLOWERS AND THEN LEAVES...

Winterjasmijn is een echte winter- en voorjaarsbloeier. Al 'vriest het dat het kraakt', dan nog blijven de bloemen fier en oneindig bloeien. Van oorsprong is de struik afkomstig uit het gebergte in China en groeit daar op steile rotswanden tussen het struikgewas (overgenomen van internet.)

habe gestern im garten gearbeitet und Lizzi hat mir dabei gesellschaft geleistet. wollte die blüten des winterjasmin fotografieren und Lizzi hat sich gleich dazu gesellt....;-))

I always find it exciting when something I've never grown before comes into bloom for the first time.. I'm pretty sure the pink one is Wintersweet and judging by the scent before me now I'm right. Please correct me otherwise.

  

Many thanks for your friendship, comments, invites and good wishes. Also thank you to those who have made me their contact. Due to poor health, eye problems and low energy I regret I can't respond in kind but nearly always manage to reply to your comments.

One invite welcome-more, too many.

Jasminum è un genere di piante (che include varie specie del gelsomino) della famiglia delle Oleaceae, originario delle regioni tropicali temperate.

 

Oggi i Jasminum vengono utilizzati come piante ornamentali, in piena terra nei giardini, come arbusti isolati, o per rivestire muri, recinzioni, pergolati, un tempo aveva molte virtù officinali. Il famoso olio di gelsomino, che i Persiani offrivano agli invitati nei banchetti importanti, si arricchisce da Dioscoride a Linneo d’una quantità di potenzialità terpeutiche legate alla sessualità.

Per quanto lo Jasminum officinalis d’origine persiana fosse notissimo anche agli antichi greci e romani, il primo a coltivarlo davvero in Italia fu Cosimo I de Medici, che naturalmente ne aveva proibito la diffusione fuori dai giardini granducali… l’Inghilterra dovrà addirittura aspettare il 1730, quando riceverà una pianta dal Malabar.

Le sue virtù officinali sono state smentite dalla farmacopea moderna.

Nel frattempo s’è diffuso anche lo Jasminum sambac di più facile cultura, che resta tranquillamente all’aperto nelle zone temperate. Ecco dunque coltivazioni industriali in Calabria e Sicilia (se ne ricavano deliziosi profumi) ed una discreta presenza in tanti altri giardini nostrani. Ed a proposito di profumo: l’aromaterapia ammette ciò che la farmacopea tradizionale ha appena escluso e così apprendiamo che il profumo di gelsomino è euforizzante e stimola direttamente l'ipotalamo a produrre l'enkefalina, sostanza che oltre ad inibire il dolore procura uno stato di benessere e di felicità. Il gelsomino dissolve le paure e le tensioni legate alla sessualità ed è tradizionalmente usato per curare i disturbi uterini e per facilitare il parto. Nella medicina omeopatica, il gelsomino giallo viene indicato contro l'influenza, il raffreddore, la cefalea e gli stati di confusione mentale, di shock, di paura del pubblico.[1] Nelle regioni a clima invernale rigido le specie meno rustiche vengono coltivate in vaso con appositi sostegni circolari assumendo la forma di piccolo cespuglio alto circa 1 m, per decorare terrazzi o appartamenti.

You saw me and said " You are so pretty!"

You came closer to notice the sheen,

You touched tenderly while I slipped away

You made me drift into you, your breath.

 

You looked back again with a smile,

Are you going away for a while? I sighed

Knowing well that you will run back

To hold me gently and wonder how I grew in you.

 

Sunrise to Sunset here,a life time for many

This year to next year, a span for so many,

Day went by, playing the game of life,

With me , as secretely as the gushing spring.

 

One day, you stepped by, a tear drop on my senses did fall,

Remorseful that the game of love did not last after the Fall,

With closed eyes and smile full of love, did I say,

Search with all your senses,

My fragrance that only you know, will go no where,

It is here, there, everywhere, you will find me,

Feel me and consume me over and over again.

In my garden De rode bloemen zijn van een hanggeranium en de gele is een winterjasmijn

 

See in the large view .

is strange this jasmine in this area where I live.

Its wonderful fragrance and flowers bloom only few days, and then die.

I know that in other parts of the world give flowers all year, or spring

It is known the quote that say : "all good is for a short time, and then dies"

(Mal is Time in Deutsch)

1000 times we talked of love

than were words enough.

1000 times, we have been silent,

tries and just feel.

1000 times we drifted us

without stopping and without a goal.

1000 times, we found ourselves

in a year of pure luck.

1000 times we dreamed of freedom,

we could not find them.

1000 times broke a dream shards,

what mattered were only you for me.

1000 times we talked of peace

because words are enough?

1000 times only the war has remained

and the words were smoke and mirrors ...

1000 times I will go with you,

in any way by any dream

1000 times I want to understand you,

I know exactly that you want too ....

"JASMINUM POLYANTHUM"

ONE OF ITS BRANCHS HOLDING ON BY ITSELF TO THE KNOB OF A PIECE OF FURNITURE.

Jasmine is the most widely used white flower perfume.

 

Wikipedia:

Mock-orange (Philadelphus, pronounced /ˌfɪləˈdɛlfəs/)[1] is a genus of about 60 species of shrubs from 1 to 6 m tall, native to North America, Central America, Asia and (locally) in southeast Europe.

 

They are named "mock-orange" in reference to their flowers, which in wild species look somewhat similar to those of oranges and lemons (Citrus) at first glance, and smell of orange flowers and jasmine (Jasminum). But Philadelphus is a basal asterid, not closely related to Jasminum (advanced asterids), and among the eudicots quite distant indeed from Citrus (advanced rosids). An entirely misleading name for Philadelphus that is sometimes encountered is syringa; this properly refers to the lilacs, which are fairly close relatives of jasmine.

I wish you all well in whatever way is most appropriate for you but cannot take on the extra work of writing it to you individually. Thank you for your good wishes and to those who have made me their contact. Due to poor health, eye problems and low energy I regret I can't take on any new contacts but nearly always manage to reply to your comments. Please no more than 1 invite
