what is the difference between these jasmine vines?
The common chambeli (jasminum officinale) is a 5 petaled flower and jasminum angulare is 7 petaled?

Both of them have different fragrance with J. officinale having a stronger fragrance note. I am not sure how correct my laymen terminology is but: Jasminum officinale. is also called Indian chambeli ( 5 petaled, larger flower, smaller compound leaves) and the other one is Pakistani chambeli (smaller 6 petals, larger compound leaves).

It should have been the opposite thing j.officinale should have been more common. As jasminum officinale is Pakistan's national flower :-)

Jasminum nitidum. Blooms on my terrace from April Till October. Fragrance fills whole terrace. But it is not a natural twiner, scrambles itself you have to train it.
