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'.
How to propagate Many-Flowered Jasmine
Propagate by semi-hardwood cuttings in Spring or Autumn.
Layer in autumn by placing moss around a piece of stem with nodes. Roots will form from the covered nodes. Cut below the new area as soon as roots have grown, and replant.
Special features of Many-Flowered Jasmine
Placing this plant indoors near a window after the buds develop, may cause it to flower faster.
Suitable for pot, be sure it has an adequate draining medium. If it sits in water, it can rot the roots.
