They are often strongly and sweetly scented. Flowering is in spring or summer in most species, some communities use this flower to cover the face of the bridegrooms.

Due to the GI tag there will be more support to jasmine growers both financially and otherwise.Since jasmine can be cultivated all year round, traditionally it grows in more numbers than that of rose and anthurium. However, it has strictly been confined to the domestic market, and used during festive occasions and for making garlands for temples deities.
