Solanum jasminoides has a fragrance that is worthy of its name. The fragrance is not as
overpowering as with some jasmines. In areas that have reasonable conditions Potato Vines
are frequently grown. The Potato Vine is a reliable plant that blooms very well in the
Spring and has a mild perfume. The foliage is damaged in the mid 20°s F. Solanum jasminoides
does have plenty of redeeming points as all of the most common plants do. The Potato Vine
will even bloom in more shade than most other vines. It is hard to kill with too much or
too little water once established. Solanum jasminoides could be termed 'garden hardy'.
