Thank you Rafique bhai. Good to know new names. I also searched about your jasmine. It is Jasminum multiflorum in my opinion. Jasminum polyanthum has compound leaves like many other common jasmines (i.e. many leaflets) and yours is just a single leaf.

Rafique if it was marked as F-1 Fire then its Majestic giants II. Fire is a shade red on the edges yellow in the center with blotch. The same color in Mammoth series is F-1 On Fire. Edges red,center yellow with blotch.
Both are large flowered pansies.
