Many-Flowered Jasmine Overview

Jasminum polyanthum is a twining climber with dark green pinnate leaves and clusters of highly scented, long-tubed white flowers that open from pink buds. It flowers in the late winter/spring. The Many-Flowered Jasmine - as it's also known - is a vigorous climber that needs a sheltered position and well-drained soil. A low-maintenance climber, it can be trained against sunny walls, planted near trees to scramble through branches in warm locations, or - in temperate climates - it is often grown in a conservatory or greenhouse, as it is not hardy. The only pruning required is the cutting out of dead branches - best done after flowering. A lovely climber, Jasminum polyanthum has earned a coveted 'RHS Award of Garden Merit'.
