Description

This deciduous hybrid between J. beesianum and J. officinale is a quick-growing twining climbing vine or scrambling shrub that can reach 15-20 feet. The optimum location to produce fragrant flowers in the summer is an area that is warm, sunny and sheltered.  Locations that include partial shade and cooler temperatures are acceptable as long as good drainage is provided.

This low maintenance vine requires no regular pruning.  However, thinning can be accomplished after flowering.

The leaves vary from simple to pinnate.

Seldom seen in U.S. gardens.

Quoting from Hillier's Manual of Trees and Shrubs, 'It is a beautiful plant where space permits it full development such as when covering an outhouse'.

Insects, Diseases, and Other Plant Problems:  Generally disease free.  Insects may include aphids, scale insects and mealybugs.
