Jasminum angustifolium, the wild jasmine,[2] is a species of jasmine native to India, Sri Lanka and the Andaman Islands.[1] It is a climbing shrub with a smooth stem and minutely pubescent branchlets. The flowers are approximately 25 mm (1 in) in diameter, and resemble a star with seven or eight narrow petals, flowering between June and August.[2]

This flower, along with Jasminum grandiflorum, play a central role in Buddhist and Hindu temple floral offerings and garlands.

'Jasminum' is a Latinized form of the Arabic word 'yasemin', for sweetly scented plants.[3]
