Jasminum officinale Common jasmine

Posted: 07 September 2012
Overall: Mine grows against the wall on trellis, over a door. I didn't know it was so vigorous when I first planted it! I have to prune it very hard, back to the trellis, every year in November otherwise snow brings the whole thing down. I've done this for twenty years and it still rewards me with heavy growth each year and summer scent.
