Product Description

Similar in many ways to traditional Jasmine, which has always been associated with summer, Trachelospermum jasminoides, or ‘Star Jasmine’, will astonish with its mass of stunning white flowers filling the air with their unmistakable, intoxicatingly rich, sweet scent between June and September. Such an incredible plant, it’s no surprise that it holds an RHS Award or Garden Merit!

‘Star Jasmine’, is a slow growing evergreen climber that can reach 6m (20ft) in a greenhouse or conservatory but planted in the garden it is much less vigorous, growing to half that size at only 20cm (8in) a year, twining around its support. It will produce waves of gorgeous pure white, star shaped flowers with petals swept anticlockwise throughout summer, each one with the most incredible fragrance. Occasionally you’ll be treated to extraordinary looking seed pods, which can be best described as looking like a pair of French beans joined together at the top.

As a hardy evergreen, ‘Star Jasmine’ has lush, glossy dark green leaves during spring and summer which changes to rich purple for the winter, providing year-round interest. Hardy down to -5°C, it grows best in a sheltered spot away from cold winds and will thrive growing on a sunny wall or over arches, pergolas and along fences. In area prone to hard frosts is will need a little winter protection.

Supplied as established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant and growing to a height and spread of 6 m (20 ft).

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Be patient - it will take a couple of years to really settle in and get their roots down before romping away

Care Guide

  • Plant in fertile, well-drained soil in sun or semi-shade. Choose a sheltered position that is protected from cold winter winds. A south or west-facing wall is ideal.
  • If growing in pots, use a good quality, soil-based compost, and place some bricks in the bottom to provide ballast.
  • In particularly cold areas, Trachelospermum is best grown in containers that can be moved to a protected position over winter.
  • Provide the twining stems with an appropriate frame support such as trellis, an obelisk or wires.
  • During the growing season, water regularly and apply a balanced feed monthly.
  • Water pot grown plants sparingly in winter.
  • After flowering, prune back the stems to restrict them to the available space, simply thinning out congested, weak or badly placed shoots.
  • Any stray branches can be tied back to their supports to improve the shape of the plant.
