The flowers are authentic for making Jasmine tea and Jasmine rice. Flowers are boiled with tea or cooked with foods and add flavor and a unique Asian feel to cuisine. Care is relatively simple and Sambac Jasmine should be fertilized with 2-10-10, 4 times annually. It prefers full sun or partial shade for best flowering. Prune back once annually to shape.

Occasionally, Neem Oil should be sprayed to prevent insect and fungal infestations.
