Jasmines are evergreen or deciduous climbers with twining stems. They can be summer or winter flowering with flowers that are white, yellow and occasionally red and pink.
All varieties have small star-shaped flowers with a sweet and distinctive fragrance. Some jasmines are tender and only suitable for growing in a conservatory or greenhouse, but the hardier varieties are good for greening up a wall or fence, with wires to support them. Plant jasmine somewhere sunny, warm and sheltered, preferably near a seating area to enjoy the scent of the flowers.
