JASMINUM (JASMINE)

(D = deciduous leaf losing and E = evergreen)

None of the following is fussy about soil, but all need support, as they are not true climbers, but wall shrubs.

Jasminum nudiflorum (D), the beautiful and popular winter jasmine which produces its bright yellow flowers from November to March. Does well on north walls.

J. officinale (D), the summer-flowering jessamine, with fragrant white flowers from June to September which sometimes reaches 20 ft.; it is best in the larger-flowered form affine, the blooms of which are flushed with pink.

J. polyanthum (E), fragrant white flowers, is less hardy. Does well on sheltered walls.
