Buy Trachelospermum asiaticum – Chinese jasmine. Dense, much-branched, leafy climber from Japan and Korea, growing to a height of 6m in in its native habitat, though much less in our climate unless grown in a conservatory. It has lustrous dark green leaves up to 5 cm long. The windmill-shaped flowers hang in loose clusters, and are jasmine scented, creamy white with a buff-yellow eye which ages to yellow-cream, from early to late summer. It prefers to be grown against a south-facing wall near a doorway so the intoxicating scent can be enjoyed.
