I think this is jasmine humile, yellow jasmine ?

Sadly it is not a fragrant vine. Though it flowers profusely in spring.

Why not try indian juhi (J. azoricum / auriculatum) it has very fragrant flowers and semi succulent vine. Flowering heavily in my garden right now :)

For a reference:
Stephanotis floribunda is available at Lalazar nursery near Do Talwar, Karachi. They have a blooming specimen in a large pot. Cuttings in 6" pots are Rs.800/- per pot.

Thnks alot Izhar, i've got the Murraya seeds today :D
Can you provide some instructions for planting these seeds. I think the fruits which u've sent contain two seeds each. How long it will take them to flower?

Adnan, I will give you the contact details of Karachi's nurseries, I hope you will get better prices from here.

Ayub, sow them in a simple but fresh mix which drains well with least manure. Yes there are two seeds per pod, you can separate them or sow them as they are, its up to you. They are slow to germinate, say in two weeks. Separate the seedlings when they have developed 3rd set of leaves into six inches pots, they grow better in semi shade but bloom better in open sun. requiring 4-5 months bloom, which will be continuous after that. They grow slowly initially but will pick the pace as they mature. They are a dwarf variety so don't expect them to get big.

I am done with local varieties.I had some of the most unusuall gerberas , I sold them away to make room for upcomming 700 daylily plants.I try to deal in plants which are unique and not available before.

I have Siam's 70+ varieties of adeniums.
I had 15 diff varieties of clematis ... sold
I have half a dozen mucuna sempervirens left.
Ferarria Crispas are under multiplication stage.

But what's comming up is even more astonishing ...

Sara, are you sure Clematis will grow here?? I have been reading much stuff on it and many gardening friends in zone 10 & 11a told me that it wont survive in the heat.
