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.
Trachelospermum will bring an exotic touch to your garden and is hardy to approx. -5°C in the UK . Slow growing and easy to manage, they're ideal for climbing up pergolas, arches, trellises or tumbling over large patio pots.
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. We have two varieties in this collection, Chili and Vanilla, and Rose.
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.
'Rose' is a gloriously scented Chinese Jasmine with an abundance of pink flowers. With dark green foliage and a vigorous habit, it’s well worth a space in your garden. Like Chilli & Vanilla it needs full sun and well-drained soil to perform well, growing up to 6m (20ft). If winter temperatures are likely to fall below 10°C it is best grown in a pot where it can be moved undercover.
The third jasmine in this collection is Trachelospermum Jasminoides (AGM), which produces waves of gorgeous pure-white star-like flowers across summer, each one with simply stunning fragrance! Holder of an RHS Award of Garden Merit, it's evergreen and winter hardy, with year-round interest - the leaves are a rich purple in winter then a deep green in spring and summer.
