This jasmine was planted in my back yard two years ago. The first year it did not bloom at all. Last year it produced a few flowers. Naturally, I was disappointed that I wasn't going to get the floral view I wanted to see from my kitchen window. But then... this year - wow! This is a pink jasmine - it produces pink buds and white flowers. It was certainly worth the wait!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
