Double Butterfly Jasmine is a beautifully shaped evergreen shrub that forms symmetrical 6 foot high mounds.

The large shiny leaves are creme and green and are 6 or more inches in length and about 2 inches in width. Double Butterfly Jasmine blooms in spring but flowers appear sporatically all year. The waxy blossoms are white double five-petaled pinwheels that are borne in small clusters on the stem tips.
