Its known as Water Jasmine, also known as Sacred Buddhist, Wild Water Plum, Wondrous Wrightia. Its considered a sacred plant for Buddhist - as you can see even the name indicate it so (Sacred Buddhist) and (Religiosa) but I really wish someone could tell me any story or legend concerning this plant.
I tried planting this one using cuttings. Somehow with so many unsuccessful attempts I had decided to start this with seeds. It took me almost a year for it to reach this height.
What marvels me is their leaves, never seen them so uniformly arranged - almost all of them in pairs.
It haven't flowered yet, I was advised that stripping the leaves and pruning may speed up the flowering stage. I had just done that last weekend. Hope it works this time.
These are the flowers, I had managed to capture them on camera. It was quite hard to get their image as the white colour somehow just appear to be like paperwhite without the tones and the whole thing is just a white blob.
This tree is been growing wildly in the abandon areas in Jinjang. I wish I could steal this tree away but it just too wild and big. Many attempts in propagating this using cuttings didn't help.
The plant look alive for few months but eventually die without any root development.
The fragrance of this jasmine is just so mesmerising that planting this jasmine and waiting for its bloom is so worthwhile - even if take years. This plant is suitable to make bonsai and very much marketed as bonsai trees compared to the original form.
