Vine identification

Hello, any idea what these 3 plants are? I live in Kuwait and sellers have other arbitrary names for them.

The white flower one I was told is a type of jasmine. (picture 1, 2 and 3)
The red flower one is supposedly cadena de amor? (picture 4 and 5)
The broad leafed one is supposed to have yellow flowers but no other information (picture 6 and 7)

The 2nd plant is a type of Clerodendrum.

RE: Vine identification

First one does look like a jasmine. There are many varieties.
Maybe Jasminum officinale?

Third one almost looks like a mandevilla type plant. If it blooms yellow, maybe Urechites lutea?

Reallly hard to say without flowers.

RE: Vine identification

Not J officinale.Wrong number of petals and wrong leaves. But I don't know others well enough to guess at an id.

RE: Vine identification

A possibility for the 1st: Jasminum leratii.

RE: Vine identification

First of all, thank you for the prompt replies.
Getting the right genus should be enough, since I want to know how if they're suitable or not for very hot dry summers.
I have been told the first one is a type of jasmine, they call it "country jasmine" as opposed to "indian jasmine" which has pink buds/white flowers.
The second one seems to be Clerodendrum x speciosum, thanks for the hint.
The third one also seems to be Urechites lutea, almost the exact same leaves but I'm a beginner at best.
Thank you for your time

RE: Vine identification

It might be helpful if you could get another shot of plant 1-3, with something to put those flowers into scale.

I'd agree that No 2 is Clerodendrum speciosum.

3 also agree with Urechites lutea, at least by the foleage.

RE: Vine identification

Sorry for the bad quality pictures.
The white flower plant, possibly some jasmine, has flowers that are approximately 3-4 cm wide, which means roughly 1.5 inches
The clerodendrum has flowers approximately 2 inches long or so
Third one has no flowers so I am not sure.

You will need to know more than just the Genus, I'm afraid. Not all Jasmine species enjoy the same conditions.

Thank you for the correction. It seems to be Jasminum leratii as a previous poster noted.
Thank you all very much for your time and knowledge of course.

Jasminum fluminense is listed as common in UAE and Oman.

RE: Vine identification

The second one is actually a hybrid called Clerodendrum x speciosum, which is a cross between Clerodednrum thomsoniae and Clerodendrum splendens. It's very weedy here in Florida. The jasmine is definitely not Jasminum fluminense. It has three leaflets and is extraordinarily invasive.

RE: Vine identification

Thank you saltcedar and Dr. for your contribution. Perhaps it is Jasminum leratii? It definitely has a scent, a lemony-pepperish smell, not sweet at all.
If it grows in Florida perhaps it will grow over here as well although I am not concerned with it being invasive or weedy at all.
