Jasmine 'Nudiflorum'

Winter Jasmine (Jasminum Nudiflorum) is a glorious climber which as the name suggests flowers in winter - from December until March - on bare wood. Well grown, it can be so covered in yellow blooms that the slim green stems are almost invisible. The flowers are followed by pinnate dark green leaves on delicate arching stems. Jasmine prefers soil rich in organic matter that is just either side of neutral, moist and free-draining. It prefers sun or partial shade but it is fully hardy and easy to grow but will need the support of wires or trellis to climb. Not for you? Have a look at the rest of our range of jasmine plants 

Great for your garden:

Jasminum 'Nudiflorum' is the perfect climbing plant to brighten up a dull corner in winter. It can be used as a deciduous climber, with the support of vine eyes and wires or trellis, or allowed to scramble over low walls and stumps. The graceful arching stems are bright green all year round and the flowers, which bloom from December until March, are a pretty bright yellow.

It will grow in sun or partial shade and is seen to perfection if grown with other spring flowering bulbs and plants or as a specimen where its myriad tiny flowers can shine.

About Winter Flowering Jasmine

Can be seen in full effect at the RHS garden, Hyde Hall.

This jasmine has been cultivated in western China for centuries, but was only introduced to the West in 1843 by Robert Fortune. Fortune was a plant hunter employed by the then Horticultural Society, most particularly to collect tea plants for transport to India.

His story is one of pirates and villains and, for most of the time, he had to work in disguise among an antagonistic Chinese population who believed him to be a spy. He was fluent in Mandarin and shaved his head leaving a pigtail, as did the Chinese, and moved around freely as a local: all very cloak and dagger. Because of Fortune's efforts, India has a tea growing industry, and we have Jasminum nudiflorum to sell.

Previously classified as Jasminum sieboldianum.

Planting and Care Instructions

How to grow Jasminum 'Nudiflorum':

Jasminum 'Nudiflorum' requires a soil with a pH of between 6.5 and 7.5 that is free-draining but moist.

If growing it against a wall, dig a hole larger than the rootball 12-18 inches away from the wall and plant the jasmine with some Root Grow and backfill with soil enriched with good compost. Firm in and water well.

Prune the plant immediately after flowering, otherwise it becomes lanky and unruly. Cut out diseased or damaged wood first, then spread the main branches over the area that you want covered and tie them in to the wall support to make your basic framework. First remove unwanted outward facing branches, then on each main branch, shorten the sideshoots to 5cm from the main stem. You can hard prune a neglected specimen to rejuvenate it.
Feed with an organic fertiliser and mulch. If you are short on mulch, a flat stone or pile of gravel at the base of the plant will keep the roots cool and the moisture in.
