Jasmine nudiflorum

Jasmine nudiflorum is a hardy shrub that can be grown virtually anywhere, making it a useful plant for a north facing or shaded location.

It can grow up to 3metres (10ft) high consequently its long flexible stems will require support.

The yellow flowers, which are susceptible to cold wind, appear from late in the year (Nov/Dec) until April the following year.



Cultivation

Week 12: Sever self layered cuttings and plant them up into individual pots and grow on in a coldframe until planting out time.
