Jasminum multipartitum (Starry Wild Jasmine or Imfohlafohlane) is a species of jasmine, in the family Oleaceae, that is native to Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and South Africa.[1]

This scrambling climber can be grown in the sun or semi-shade. It produces masses of white, scented, star-shaped flowers and it attracts a variety of birds.[2]

This is one of approximately ten species of Jasmine that occur in South Africa. Starry Wild Jasmine is naturally found in the woodlands of the Eastern Cape and Kwazulu Natal, as well as inland as far as Johannesburg. [3]
