This vigorous Jasmine forms an attractive wall shrub with climbing stems. It has long dark green leaves which are the perfect foil for the wonderful velvety-red fragrant flowers which cover the shrub in May and June. Black berries follow.
The unforgettable scent of the white flowers of this, The Common White Jasmine or Poet's Jasmine makes this plant anything but common. Thought to have been introduced to this country as long ago as the 1500s
Jasminum officinale Clotted Cream is a fairly new variety and much sort after for the lovely creamy flowers, a delicious change to the pure white flowers of the plain form. This semi evergreen Jasmine has very sweetly scented flowers and is ideal for growing on a sunny wall, ideally where people will walk past in June and August when the flowers are open and they can be intoxicated by the scent.
This rather spectacular form of Jasminum officinale has creamy white heavily scented flowers in late summer, set off well by the golden foliage which improves in colour as the plants mature. Found in a batch of seedlings in a West Country nursery and named after the person who spotted this very attractive form.
