Crepe jasmines thrive outdoors in warm climates like those found in USDA plant hardiness zones 9 through 11.
Although the shrubs look elegant and refined, they are not at all picky about soil as long as it is well drained.
If you are growing crepe jasmine, you can plant the shrubs in full sun or partial shade. They require regular irrigation to keep the soil moist.
Once the root systems are established, they require less water. Crepe jasmine care is reduced if you are growing the plant in acidic soil.
With slightly alkaline soil, you’ll need to apply fertilizer regularly to prevent the shrub from getting chlorosis.
If the soil is very alkaline, crepe jasmine care will include more frequent applications of fertilizer.
