Trachelospermum, also known as Star Jasmine, will smother walls, fences, structures and supports in beautifully fragrant, star-shaped flowers all summer-long. As both a hardy and evergreen plant, jasmines provide year-round interest in your garden with gorgeous glossy green foliage all year embellished by beautiful flowers throughout the summer.
Slow growing and easy to manage, they're ideal for climbing up pergolas, arches, trellises or tumbling over large patio pots.
Trachelospermum will bring an exotic touch to your garden and is hardy to approx. -5°C in the UK and can grow to 6m tall, making it a perfect choice for training up supports and structures.
The Chinese jasmine, Trachelospermum asiaticum, bears clusters of jasmine-scented, flowers from mid- to late-summer, contrasting perfectly with its dark green leaves. It’s perfect for covering a sheltered, sunny wall or fence, and may be trained to grow through a tree.
Chili & Vanilla is an evergreen jasmine with many very fragrant yellow-cream flowers from June to August, followed by green pods that look like vanilla pods and later red chillies. Drought resistant when established, plants do need protection from prolonged exposure to intense cold so we recommend growing it in a pot where it can be moved undercover. Ht 3m x 2m, grow in full sun and expect to see the interesting, inedible fruits from September to October.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot ready to plant out now.
