Plant details

Trachelospermum asiaticum is the answer for anyone wanting that elusive combination: an evergreen climber with heavily scented flowers. The foliage is neat and unobtrusive, and makes a good background for the clusters of creamy white flowers that appear in mid-summer. It is, however, best grown with other climbers such as clematis on a wall or pergola to extend the season of interest. It is particularly good for growing over an arch or arbour where the delicious perfume can be best appreciated. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
