  • Jasminum undulatum Ker-Gawl.

    Shrub scandent; branchlets hairy, slender. Leaves opposite, simple, ovate-lanceolate, acuminate, up to 5 cm long, pubescent on the nerves beneath, somewhat undulate; petiole short. Flowers scentless, 6-10 in terminal cymes. Calyx pubescent, teeth c. 5 mm, subulate. Corolla white, tinged with red outside, tube c. 1.5 cm long, lobes half the length of the tube or less, acute. Berry simple or didymous, globose, 6 mm in diam., black when ripe, surrounded by suberect subulate calyx teeth.

    This species resembles Jasminum multiflorum very much but differs in its shorter calyx teeth and corolla lobes, and in its scentless flowers. The venation of the leaves is more or less open in Jasminum amplexicaule whereas it is closed in Jasminum multiflorum.
