If you do not have a big garden go and buy a big pot to suit your needs and at least plant a jasmine and make sure once it is mature that you make a sapling from one of its  long branches into a smaller pot and give it to a friend to care for it.

It flowers almost throughout the year.
There are three varities. Sri-Lankan variety is difficult to care for and is a slender plant, the Indian and the commoner variety (needs a big pot) are rugged and withstand dry weather better.
