About: Stephanotis flowers have long been treasured for their beauty and sweet scent. The tropical twining vine, with its dark shiny foliage and snowy flowers, are a traditional element in wedding bouquets and many of us received our first info on the Stephanotis flower from our florist. Info on the Stephanotis Flower When we talk about Stephanotis plant care, we’re talking about Stephanotis floribunda, or Madagascar jasmine, though it is not a member of the jasmine family. The flowers present as narrow, tubular, waxy horns about 2 inches (5 cm.) in length. Each flower has a crown of five lobes and stamens that someone long ago thought looked like tiny ears, hence the name from the Greek stephanos (crown) and otis (ear). The leaves are leathery, oval-shaped, and opposite and the plant’s woody tendrils can grow to 20 feet (6 m.) in the wild. Growing And Caring For Stephanotis Flowers Stephanotis can be problematic and they tend to suffer from shock when their environment is radically changed. These fussy topicals aren’t the easiest plants to care for and this is why the flower is pricey. But should a bride choose stephanotis as her signature flower, they are lovely, sweet scented and a stand out beautiful tropical flower.
