Roberta's 2-piece Sweetly Scented Philippine Jasmine
Smells wonderful but ...
I bought two of these this summer. They looked just ok when we received them, but they are now looking healthy, although they're still no more than a foot tall. I'm optimistic that they'll grow next summer. The 3-4 flowers we get every now and then smell so nice. I guess I wish they would grow faster, but I think it was partly my fault, I planted them near taller plants and were shaded from any sunlight.
I recommend this product even though they haven't grown as expected, because I bought another type of jasmine plant and they don't smell at all. The Philippine jasmine smell really nice. If you like the smell of gardenias, I think you'll love this jasmine even more.
I had no luck with this plant
Looked very healthy when I received. Planted in a big pot outdoors. Since I received and planted, it is still green and looks ok but It barely grew all summer. Had only a few flowers here and there over the past few months. Didn't work for me. Maybe it would do well for someone else.
I bought two of these flowers, one for myself and another for my mom for Mother's Day this year (it was very well received!). We're both from the Philippines so this reminded us of home, it was also my grandmother's favorite flower which makes it very special. My plants are outside on planters in a partial shade, we've been experiencing triple digit weather this summer and so far it's holding up well; my jasmine has bloomed at least 3-4 times since May and I know my mom's flowers are also thriving. Hopefully they will survive being indoors. This is my first purchase with Roberta's and I'm happy with the plants I've received... thank you for offering this on QVC!
don't waste your money
Okay, I've had it with ordering plants from QVC. I've done it in the past and thought maybe I didn't follow instructions correctly. Couldn't wait to get these. Planted just as the instructions said and I think they have only grown about 3-4 inches since planting them more than a month ago. What a disappointment! Saw these at a hotel in Carmel and couldn't believe the fragrance so was so excited to be able to get them when QVC offered them. Never again!
This is one of my favorite purchases. The plants arrived in excellent condition, started blooming as promised. Would really recommend....smells like paradise! Very happy !
Of course I just have the plants beginning to grow in pots but they are looking great. The packaging was the best I have ever seen on plants received by mail! My husband requested the jasmine as he loves the fragrance. I potted them just over a week ago (and have them outdoors for the present), and they are already starting small blooms. We are hoping to enjoy these for many years. I ordered dahlias and obedients as well. Dahlias not showing yet (planted in a bed) and 2 of the 3 obedients look good so far. Hope the 3rd obedient will improve. I would recommend Robert's plants to anyone.
So far so good
The two plants I have received were small but seems growing well in the sunny location. They look like they are budding and I can't wait to smell the flowers. I have very good luck with Roberta this year. All the plants I have received are doing great. Thank you Roberta for sending me healthy exotic plants! It will be nice if Roberta will offer more trees next year.
Received the plants in good condition and with a few blooms on them. Seem to be doing fine so far after about two weeks since receiving them.
Reminiscent of Hawaii!
Plants arrived in excellent condition.......starting to bloom and smell like heaven!
Received my 2 Jasmine plants in perfect condition,They were packaged nicely, plants looked great nice and green with many buds the dirt was damp and not dry.
died after first season
bought this last year one plant did not grow in grown and the other one grew about 18" and bloomed but after the summer it died and I had it in a large pot in barrier area so it would not die from cold and this year it did not do a thing I just hope everything I bought this year does not die.. Roberta's are on probation with me. How do you get a refund anyway? :( :(
What a waste of money and time...just got about six inches tall, all summer two tiny blooms on each..then took inside in the fall..died...
