Trachelospermum asiaticum

Dense, evergreen, delicate, rare and delicious smelling with copious quantities of little yellow star shaped flowers. It differs from its better known cousin (Trachelospermum jasminoides) in being slower growing (much), more frost hardy and having even more powerfully fragrant flowers. In other ways there are many similarities – twines round anything, dislikes chalky soil and flowers later but looks better in a bit of shade. Always in short supply.

Propagated by us from cuttings.

N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.

As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
