Evergreen

Murraya exotica, commonly known as Orange Jasmine, is a popular evergreen shrub or small tree that belongs to the Rutaceae family. This plant is native to Southeast Asia, including countries like China, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia. It has also been widely cultivated in various tropical and subtropical regions around the world.

Foliage
The plant has glossy, dark green, compound leaves with a strong citrus scent when crushed. The leaves are arranged alternately on the stems.

Flowers
One of the main attractions of Orange Jasmine is its fragrant white flowers. These small, star-shaped flowers typically bloom in clusters and emit a sweet, orange-blossom-like fragrance.

Fruit
The plant produces small, red to orange, berry-like fruits. While these fruits are not commonly consumed by humans, they add ornamental value to the plant.

Size
Orange Jasmine can be grown as a compact shrub or trained into a small tree. It generally reaches a height of 2 – 3m, but it can be pruned to maintain a desired size and shape.

Growing Conditions
Murraya exotica thrives in tropical and subtropical climates. It prefers well-drained soil and should be planted in a location with full to partial sunlight. It is relatively drought-tolerant once established.

Uses
Orange Jasmine is often grown as an ornamental plant in gardens and landscapes due to its attractive foliage and fragrant flowers. It can be used as a hedge, a specimen plant, or as part of a mixed shrub border. In some regions, it’s also grown in containers as a patio or indoor plant.

Care
Regular watering and occasional fertilization can promote healthy growth. Pruning can be done to maintain the desired shape and size. Pests and diseases are generally not significant issues, but it’s always a good practice to monitor the plant for any problems.

It’s important to note that while Murraya exotica is commonly referred to as Orange Jasmine, it is not a true jasmine (genus Jasminum). The name “Orange Jasmine” likely comes from the resemblance of its fragrant flowers to those of true jasmine plants and the citrus-like scent of the crushed leaves.
