Winter Jasmine Jasminum nudiflorum

Description

Winter Jasmine is a dense, fountain-like, semi-evergreen shrub that grows up to 5'. This plant has irregular blooming in late winter/early spring. It is easily separated from J. floridum because leaves are opposite. Foliage will abscise and stems will die in severe winters. This plant roots easily where arching branches touch soil. The cane-like, rapid growth creates colonies that look messy if unpruned, and can rejuvenate by severe pruning after flowering. This plant is used on slopes, in raised planters, in foundations, as specimen, and on overhanging walls. Winter Jasmine is drought tolerant, is tolerant of partial shade, does well in sterile soils (good in clear-cut areas), is seldom damaged by deer, and is pest and disease resistant.
