Tabernaemontana divaricata, commonly known as the pinwheel flower or crape jasmine, is a tropical shrub appreciated for its fragrant, white, or yellow flowers. Here are some care tips for Tabernaemontana divaricata:

Plant crape jasmine in a location with partial to full sunlight. It prefers at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight daily.

Provide well-draining, fertile soil. Crape jasmine adapts well to various soil types but thrives in a loamy, well-drained substrate.

Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the growing season. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Reduce watering in winter when the plant is not actively growing.

Crape jasmine prefers warm temperatures and is sensitive to frost. It's well-suited for tropical and subtropical climates.

This plant appreciates higher humidity levels. If you're growing it in a drier climate, consider misting the leaves occasionally.

Prune crape jasmine to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth. Remove dead or damaged branches. Pruning can be done after the flowering season.

Feed the plant with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the package instructions for application rates.

Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to help retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and provide some insulation.

Pests and Diseases:
Keep an eye out for pests such as aphids or spider mites. Treat with insecticidal soap if necessary. Crape jasmine is generally resistant to most diseases.

Container Growing:
Crape jasmine can be grown in containers, which is beneficial for controlling soil conditions and positioning the plant. Ensure the pot has drainage holes.

Winter Care:
Protect crape jasmine from cold temperatures and frost. If you're growing it in a colder climate, consider bringing it indoors during the winter months.
