Star Jasmine

/, Climbers/Star Jasmine



Star Jasmine ( or Chinese Jasmine – Trachelospermum jasminoides)
If you have a boring wall, especially if the rest of the garden is shedding it’s leaves and is starting to look
impoverished,Star Jasmine is a most beautiful choice. It is evergreen and has a superb structure. It never threatens to take over your garden and in summer has the most intense fragrance and it can be grown in pots so can dominate a courtyard. It can grow up to 8 meters, does best on a sheltered south facing position but will survive even on a north facing wall, and requires minimal pruning. It has a ‘bonsai’ like quality to it where you can pay attention to every leaf and twisted tentacle. As this picture shows it can even  be grown on an outhouse wooden wall and still let the chocolate brown colours and the secure order of the
woodpile to come through.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
