Stephanotis floribunda is an evergreen climber with large, glossy leaves and thick stems. The deep green leaves contrast with clusters of white, heavily perfumed, star-like flowers that are abundant from Spring to Autumn.


Stephanotis is a tropical plant that requires warmth and humidity, whose flowers appear on new growth so, prune sparingly in late winter. The soil or potting mix should be well-draining, avoid root rot by watering sparingly but spray the leaves often. Stephanotis roots like to be snug but not root-bound, only repot up one size as required. You may need to bring the plant inside or provide shelter outside for areas with cold winters.

Landscape Uses

An evergreen climber perfect for planting in warm north facing protected areas where it can climb over a structure, or on a trellis, so you can make the most of the fragrance. Waxy white perfumed flowers are often used in floral arrangements and bouquets. Plant in pots on a hoop or small trellis and keep inside to create a tropical feel.
