Overview

An open growing evergreen shrub, it produces long slender arching stems that will climb like a vine if supported. If it's grown without support it grows in a fountain-like mound about 3mtrs high and wide. It has fragrant trumpet shaped flowers over glossy dark green leaves. Flowers appear in early spring but occasionally in the summer. Primrose jasmine is very similar to winter jasmine but is less hardy.

Common problems

Can suffer from Mealybugs & scale insects when grown indoors

Harvesting

Take cuttings for propagation in autumn after flowering.

Propagation

Cuttings

Propagate by semi-hardwood cuttings in Spring or Autumn.

Layering

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

Indoor plant

Placing this plant indoors near a window after the buds develop may cause it to flower faster.

Pot plant

Suitable for pot, be sure it has an adequate draining medium. If it sits in water too long it can rot the roots.

Hedge plant

Trail up a structure to quickly cover an area.

Uses

This low maintenance plant is frequently planted in wall side borders & trained up trellises to act as a screen. It can suit urban city gardens provided it is given winter protection but frequently grown in conservatories.
