Trachelospermum jasminoides 'Variegatum'

variegated star jasmine

RHS award of garden merit £19.99
Pot size 2 litre pot
2 litre pot

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: initially slow-growing
  • Flowering period: July and August
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will need winter protection)

    Wonderful, white-splashed, green leaves, which remain on the plant throughout the year, are accompanied by clusters of jasmine-scented, pure white, tubular flowers in mid and late summer. Variegated star jasmine is an attractive climber for a sheltered, sunny wall. It is less hardy than the plain-green form however, so where winter temperatures fall below -10 C, it's best grown in a cool greenhouse or conservatory.

  • Garden care: No pruning necessary, however you can snip it back in February or March trim to keep within bounds. Protect from the winter weather.
