Variegation

Trachelospermum asiaticum ‘Ogon Nishiki’ is a striking star jasmine, bearing variegated leaves in gold, green, yellow and white, which are complemented by fragrant white flowers in summer. Its autumn colours are spectacular. Although technically a climber it’s slow to start growing and may need support to climb a fence or trellis. Alternatively, grow as ground cover, or plant in pots and allow its foliage and flowers to cascade down, with dramatic effect.
