Common yellow jasmine, Jasminum fruticans, is a small semi-evergreen shrub with yellow, slightly fragrant flowers that appear in summer and early autumn. The flowers are followed by glossy black berries that remain on the plant from autumn and through winter. As it matures, it forms a dome shape that can reach around two metres in height.

This tough shrub is drought-tolerant once established, and, being native to the Mediterranean, combines well with heat-loving plants like lavender, thyme and salvias.

For best results, grow Jasminum fruticans in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Mulch around the base of the plant in autumn to protect the roots from hard winter frosts. Should it outgrow its allotted growing space, it can be cut back just after it has finished flowering.
