Jasminum Beesianum, also known as ‘Jasmine’, is a fabulous semi evergreen climber native to China. This plant is prized for its fragrant, star-shaped pink flowers that bloom from early to mid Summer. The blooms are followed by small, black berries that are a food source for birds. It can lose some of its leaves in Winter and in some colder regions or more exposed gardens, it could lose all of its leaves, but then fresh foliage will appear again in Spring.
The shrub can grow up to 6 metres long and prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Jasminum Beesianum is a fast-growing plant that is ideal for use as a fragrant accent or for training on a trellis or arbor.
How to care for your Jasminum Beesianum
- Planting: Grows best in well-drained soils in a location with full sun. When planting, be sure to provide a trellis or other support structure for the vine to climb on.
- Watering: Water regularly, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil consistently moist. Avoid over-watering, as it does not tolerate waterlogged soils.
- Fertilising: Does not require regular fertilisation, but you can feed it once a year with a balanced fertiliser in the Spring.
- Pruning: Prune after it has finished flowering to maintain its shape and to encourage new growth. Cut back the previous year’s growth to within 5 to 7cms off the ground.
By following these care tips, you can help ensure that your Jasminum Beesianum will thrive and produce beautiful, fragrant flowers year after year.
