Aphnids are an issue. I keep this ( Asian yellow jasmine) inside during our (zone 5-6) winters in a bright sunroom. Then gradually bring it outside. This past winter, it seemed to bloom every day. Sadly, the fragrance was almost nonexistent. I bought if from mail order about five years ago. It gets big and wants to go every where.

Grows in morning sun and under an elm. It blooms earlier than any shrub in the yard (Feb.- March) and it has great sculptural qualities like a fountain flowing. Gets big.

I have grown this plant in back yard for 4yrs. It is huge, but has never bloomed. The soil is pretty much red soil, but I do try to fertilize occasionally. What can I do to help bloom? Cannot move, too large.

This plant seems to thrive here in our microclimate just as well. We're nearby a big waterbody, thus the microclimate perhaps a little difference than most in our zone. This plant which I just have it properly I.D.ed was here for years, a charming little yellow bloomer, well behaves. And is tolerance of neglect in a woodland setting.

The little yellow flowers smell like carnations, and the plant grows easily and blooms spring and fall in my yard
