Jasminum officinale is also referred to as Common Jasmine and unlike some evergreen Jasmine varieties, Jasminum officinale is a deciduous climbing shrub. In keeping with other summer-flowering Jasmine varieties however, Jasmine officinale shares their most pleasing attributes featuring clusters of pretty, five-petalled white flowers in summer with the signature sweet and floral scent for which Jasmine is eternally popular. The flowers are borne over deep green leaves which offset the soft white flowers perfectly.
Jasmine officinale is best planted in a sheltered location in full sun although it will tolerate a little shade. It will grow happily in any soil type as long as it is well-drained and being a vigorous climber, can reach up to around 8m height and 2.5m spread but a good prune annually can keep it in check. Being a twining, fast-growing flowering Jasmine, it will cover a wall or trellis in a relatively short amount of time so is particularly good if you wish cover a wall or structure fairly quickly.
Trimming of your Jasmine officinale if required, should be carried out immediately after flowering by trimming out any weak, damaged or old and thin shoots. This will keep the plant looking tip-top and productive.
