Plant details

This jasmine has pink flowers, as a change from the better known common Jasminum officinale, but is also scented. It makes a large twining plant and is best left unpruned, apart from a light tidy in spring. For this reason it is best not grown on trellis on the house wall where it would soon outgrow the space. Use it to cover a garage or other outbuilding, or train it over a pergola or large arch. The flowering season is mainly restricted to early and mid summer, so where space allows team it with climbing roses, clematis or honeysuckle to extend the flowering season. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Jess is in the Garden

Mine is on a warm trellis, getting east sun from sunrise onwards, then some west sun for a few hours. It is growing very well, but even though it's 3 years old, it has never produced a single flower. It's in open soil which is free draining and moist, in a large raised flower. Protected from strong winds. Why won't it flower? Is it still too young perhaps?
