Jasminum polyanthum

Chinese scented jasmine

RHS award of garden merit
2 lt pot (60cm cane) £24.99
  • Position: sun to part shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: tender (will need winter protection)

    A vigorous twining climber with attractive dark, glossy evergreen leaves. The real attraction though is the mass of highly scented star-shaped white flowers that open from pink buds. A good choice for covering the wall of an unheated conservatory, or for smothering a wigwam of canes set into a pot. When grown inside in a warm conservatory they flower from late winter, but in colder temperatures the flowers appear from spring to summer.

  • Garden care: Grow in a pot on a sunny patio with shade from midday sun during the summer, and move to a protected spot with a minimum temperature of 10C during the winter. Feed every two weeks during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertiliser. Prune to fit the growing frame in late winter or early spring.
