Madan Mogra Another beautiful and unusual specie in the J. Sambac family. With it's long slender oval shape buds one cannot but admire the flowers when open. Flowers are double and very fragrant without any doubt that of Jasmine. Unless give warmth, full sun, and well drained soil, you may not be successful in growing this variety. Never the less it does belong with all other Jasmines one grows on a window sill.
