Plant winter jasmine in full sun, semi- or full shade (fewer flowers in shade). For rich and deep soils, no heavy loam soils.
Jasmine nudiflorum ~ winter jasmine ~ is a rambler that grows with long hanging shoots. Has moderately vigorous growth up to 3 m in height. It can be grown as a shrub or as a climber. With its fine and 'filigree' leaves, winter jasmine is good for detailed greening and accentuation of facades. It often appears inconspicuous during the summer. Forms dense, green mats with overhanging vegetation. Foliage from April to October. The flowers can appear before Christmas in milder winters, otherwise in February or March. The bright yellow stars are striking against a dark background. Branches should be cut before flowering; flowers open when room temp. is reached within a few days; they look like forsythia branches. The fruits (inconspicuous black berries) usually do not develop. Pruning can promote branching in winter jasmine.
