Trach­e­losper­mum jas­mi­noides – Chi­nese Star Jas­mine

Sunday Mail - home - - Gardening -

This is an ex­tremely ver­sa­tile climber, grow­ing in sun or shade and pro­duc­ing sweetly per­fumed white starry flow­ers in late spring and sum­mer, as well as spo­rad­i­cally through the warmer months. The fo­liage is thick and leath­ery and an at­trac­tive deep green, cloth­ing the stems from ground level, mak­ing it ex­tremely use­ful as some climbers lose fo­liage where the stems no longer re­ceive ad­e­quate sun­light. Many climbers have a ten­dency to be­come strag­gly when grown on a fence or wall, es­pe­cially where there is some shade, how­ever, un­der these same con­di­tions, T. jas­mi­noides will re­tain its fo­liage to the base of the plant.
