6. Jasminum L. (jasmine, jessamine)

About 200 species, South America, Africa, Asia, south to Australia.

Burrows and Tyrl (2001) listed Jasminum as a genus of questionable toxicity, noting that the plants sequester extensive monoterpenoids and their glycosides, especially jasminin, jasminoside, jasmoside, and jasmolactones. These compounds, when ingested in quantity, can cause irritation to the digestive tract.
