About plant names...

Native to southeastern China, pink jasmine has become naturalized in Australia and New Zealand, where in some areas it is considered an invasive species. It is not found in the wild in North America, though it is popular with gardeners.

Identification: Plants produce twining vines that can reach 20' (6.1 m). Leaves occur in groups of 5-7, each 2-4" (5-10 cm) long and ½-1" (1.3-2.5 cm) wide. They are dark green on top, lighter on the bottom, narrow and somewhat wavy, with smooth edges. Vines form profuse pink buds that open into five-petaled white flowers with a wonderful scent. Flowers are about ¾" (2 cm) in diameter. Berries are black, ⅛-⅜" (6-11 mm) around.
