JASMINUM

Jasmine (from Persian yasmin, i.e. "gift from God" via Arabic) is a genus of shrubs and vines of the olive family (Oleaceae), with about 200 species, native to tropical and warm temperate regions of the Old World. The majority of species grow as climbers on other plants or on structures such as wire, gates or fences. The leaves can be either evergreen (green all year round) or deciduous (falling leaves in autumn), and are opposite in most species; leaf shape is simple, trifoliate or pinnate with up to nine leaflets.
Jasmine is widely cultivated for its flowers, enjoyed in the garden, as house plant, and as cut flower. The flowers are worn by women in their hair in southern and southeast Asia. Many species also yield an absolute, which is used in the production of perfumes and incense
