Trailing Shrub with Year-Round Interest
Winter Flowering Jasmine, Jasminum nudiflorum, is a trailing shrub with superior ornamental features. Plant one near your terrace or on an arbor where it will be free to climb. These are also gorgeous on a gentle slope where the vine is free to branch out along the ground.
Cultivated in China for centuries before being brought to the U.S., Winter Jasmine is an exceptional Jasmine variety, beloved especially for its winter appeal. Although particularly prized in winter, you’ll soon find that Winter Jasmine will create a lovely picture in your landscape at any time. The green stems are engaging against the drab, winter landscape, but also captivating in summer.
The leaves possess an oval shape and appear in threes, with an attractive glossy appearance. In late winter, delicate blossoms form along the branches, even before the foliage appears for spring. You’ll adore the 1-inch, funnel-shaped blooms, each a lively yellow shade and appearing in abundance at a time when your other plantings are still sleeping off their winter rest.
Winter Flowering Jasmine is a deciduous shrub that will grow up to 4 feet in height with a 15-foot reach (when grown as a vine). If grown as a shrub, it tends to form a 6- foot mound with spreading branches. It’s perfect for a groundcover with its naturalized appearance or also works well as a climber. It’s fast growing and an easy plant to manage, requiring little time or effort. Winter Jasmine has no serious disease or pest issues, and is generally maintenance free (unless you choose to prune it to a particular shape).
Jasmine is always a popular choice among gardeners, and Winter Jasmine has the added advantage of providing year-round interest with particular late winter appeal. It’s fragrance-free, but more than makes up for that lack with its winter appearance. It’s a type of Jasmine that every Jasmine lover will want to showcase in their landscape, and sure to be a favorite of in your yard this year.
