Jasminum Fiona Sunrise, also known as ‘Common Jasmine’ and holder of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, is a fabulous yellow leaved climber that is prized for its white, fragrant flowers. This plant is native to China and is typically grown as a woody vine that can reach up to 12 metres in length.
The flowers bloom in late Spring and early Summer, producing an abundance of sweet-smelling, white blooms that are highly attractive to bees and butterflies. The foliage is a deep green colour, providing a backdrop for the showy blooms.
This plant prefers full sun, partial shade, well-drained soil and a sheltered position. The plant is best trained on a trellis or arbor, where its twining habit and fragrant blooms can be fully appreciated.
How to care for your Jasminum Fiona Sunrise
- Light: This plant prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as it can cause leaf burn.
- Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Over-watering can lead to root rot, so be sure to have good drainage.
- Soil: This plant prefers well-draining soil with a slightly acidic pH. You can use a general purpose potting mix and add sand for better drainage.
- Fertiliser: Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser every two weeks during the growing season. Reduce feeding to monthly during the Autumn and Winter.
- Pruning: Prune after it has finished blooming to encourage new growth and to maintain its shape. Remove any dead or damaged stems and leaves.
By following these tips, you can help your Jasminum Fiona Sunrise thrive and enjoy its beautiful blooms and fragrant scent for many years to come.
