Plant details

The dry valleys of the Himalayas are the home of J. humile, evergreen in sheltered positions although cold winds can cause some leaf loss, compensated for by the green stems which give an evergreen effect. Plants are bushy and make very beautiful free-standing shrubs, but if grown against a wall the stems will climb and may be trained in. The richly coloured, lightly scented flowers are borne on old stems and the tips of new growth, so providing a long season of colour. 'Revolutum' has the best colour and strongest fragrance. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
