Wnter Jasmine is happy in almost any location – tolerates most soils and weather conditions.
The Winter Jasmine is a free climbing plant
The long, flexible branches of the Winter Jasmine can easily be trained against walls or fences or over arbours and trellises. Unlike some jasmines the branches cannot support themselves and should be tied. Alternatively, the branches can twined through other climbing plants, such as the ivy. Best planted in a sunny to partial shaded spot protected from the wind.
The Winter Jasmine is a strong plant that requires minimal maintenance. Give it extra water during dry periods. Are you growing this climbing plant outdoors? If so, make sure it stays fairly dry. Provide it with garden manure at the end of the winter, if possible. Strong pruning is absolutely unnecessary. You can trim its long branches immediately after flowering or trim regularly to maintain the shape of the plant and prevent bare patches forming.
Adorable yellow flowers appear in winter on bare stems before the leaves, which is why it is also called the ‘Nude’ Yellow Flowering Jasmine. Frost-resistant, the flowers can even tolerate frost and snow during the winter. The branches remain green all winter long. When the buds are almost open cut a branch for a vase – lovey and cheerful!
