Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On Feb 1, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

The hardiest of jasmines, and unfortunately it has no fragrance.

I'm still figuring out how to use this well in the garden here in Boston Z6a. In some years the buds blast from the deep freezes, and in others they escape unscathed to bloom in the warmer spells of our winters.

This plant is tough as nails, and a hunk ripped out of a planting in midsummer will easily adjust to a new home. I will grow in heavy shade and in difficult dry shade, though I don't know how well it blooms there. The weeping stems don't get taller than about 2', but they root where they touch the ground and form a dense groundcover. They are well placed at the top of a retaining wall where they can hang down attractively.

This isn't evergreen here, but though it sheds its leaves in the fall, its fresh green stems give an evergreen impression.

Stems can reach 10' in milder climates and can be trained up like a climbing rose.

Yellow, winter blooming Jasmine starts blooming in November and is still blooming in March, now. It is great to have blooms all winter long. (like Sarcococca)
But no fragance, just bright yellow flowers.
It starts from cuttings easily.
We grow it in 2 places here on Guemes Island in the San Juan Islands in Washington State, near the Canadian Border.

This vigorous evergreen with habit intermediate between vine and shrub is dependably hardy in coastal Massachusetts. Placed against a sunny south-facing wall, it will bloom in late winter and earliest spring, well before forsythia; in mild winters, the flowers start appearing in February!

Positive outdoorlover On Feb 14, 2012, outdoorlover from Enid, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

Grows vigorously and beautifully in zone 6b with bright yellow flowers from about December thru March even after the hottest summer ever in the United States and after record cold spells for our zone (minus 23 degrees) last winter.

Positive bonehead On Dec 1, 2009, bonehead from Cedarhome, WA (Zone 8b) wrote:

The first color in winter, often blooming as the last feverfew is giving up the ghost. Looks especially lovely with a light snowfall. I agree it should be planted where it can sprawl, mine is against a pasture fence which is leans on and through. I also plan to move some to a hillside area for a mounding effect.

Positive tompope On Feb 22, 2008, tompope from Raleigh, NC (Zone 7b) wrote:

A beautiful, durable, versatile plant definitely deserving of a place in at least some gardens. It forms a mounding, spreading, cascading shrub with hundreds of long, stringy green stems arching indefinitely from the crown. It grows fast, and the branches root where they touch the ground, so it can actually become a bit of a nuisance, and should be carefully considered when planting. Frankly, it's usually not an appropriate choice for a small space or an especially tidy yard. Often best to take advantage of its hardiness and sprawling habit by planting where it can either spill down a bank or a wall, or clamber up and through a fence or other structure. The green stems and small, glossy summer foliage look good all the time, and the yellow flowers are earlier and softer in color than forsythia--a very welcome presence in the bleak January-February landscape. Once established, it tolerates incredible drought and abuse, although, like most plants, it looks best with regular water, fertilizer, and pruning. For off-season color and year-round textural presence, it's a winner here in the mid-South.

Spreads by rooting where new shoots touch the ground.
Will cascade over a wall or if trained on a trellis can grow to 15 ft.

Neutral Baa On Nov 23, 2001, Baa wrote:

A useful winter interest shrub from Western China.

Has entire (smooth edged), dark green, pinnate leaves divided into 3 leaflets on arching stems. Bears butter yellow, solitary flowers prior to the leaves returning.

Flowers November to February.

Likes a well drained, fertile soil in sun or partial shade.

I have seen this plant used in a hedge which is very effective in the dull winter months.

Prune out a quarter of old shoots and cut back flowered stems (after flowering) to younger growth or strong buds.
