Stephanotis

by | Jul 11, 2020

I was first introduced to Stephanotis when visiting a girlfriend’s home in Waimea. I was attracted to the scent and the actual flowering bud clusters as the vine weaved itself around its host tree. This twining vine is evergreen and can grow to 30’! Its alias name – Hawaiian Wedding Flower – reflects on days past when it was the chosen bridal flower and woven into the brides hair, and/or included in bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres.

I searched for quite some time until I finally found one of these simply beauties to serve as my starter. I identified a money tree near our lanai entrance, thinking this host tree would be perfect. Now, about three years later, I see confirmation that I had chosen wisely. My Stephanotis, also referred to as Madagascar Jasmine, wraps around the trunk of the tree, then up, up up into the long, pointed leaves, then drips down in small and large clusters. Perfect! Now, where can I plant another one???
