A Rising Star....

A- | A+

Do you want a climber that has everything going for it?  Beautiful glossy evergreen foliage that turns a glorious ruby red in winter?  Vigorous but not rampant growth that will cover a fence but not swamp your garden?  Best of all, a glorious and sweetly-scented white flower that will fill the summer evenings with its heady scent? If the answer is yes, then look no further than Star Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides).

(Star Jasmine)

Star Jasmine is one of our most popular climbers but there are still plenty of people out there who have not discovered its charms.  Ideal for a sunny location, it will thrive in most soils except shallow chalk.  It can also be easily grown in a large pot.  An annual feed in the spring with Vitax Q4 slow release fertilizer is all that is needed to keep plants in full vigour.  We sell plants on 80cm canes through to 2m tall specimens, and can even supply ready grown arches which are truly spectacular when in full bloom!

For customers who are already familiar with Trachelospermum jasminoides we also offer in limited numbers a variegated form.  Another lovely evergreen species we have is Trachelospermum asiaticum which is similar but has a highly fragrant butterscotch yellow star-shaped flower.

So if you want one climber that does it all, Star Jasmine is indeed a true star!
