The main feature of winter jasmine is that it bears bright yellow flowers in the bare twigs in winter and early spring. The green shoots and foliage persist in the plant for most of the year.
How to plant
Plant in fertile well drained soil. Winter jasmine grows well in any garden soil as long as it drains well.
Tied in to supports and guided over a sunny or lightly shaded wall it will give you a magnificent background when it is flowering in winter or with all the foliage during the rest of the year.
How to prune
After flowering you should cut back long flowered shoots to strong buds. Take some oldest growths at the base every two or three years to keep the plant vigorous.
