Our collection from Sichuan of this variant on the Jasminum humile theme.  A scrambling, weaving and somewhat scandent shrublet with thin stems that infiltrates the marginal spaces among shrubs and can grow up through them for a little support.  Bright yellow flowers which are unscented but cheery nonetheless.  This form is doubtfully or at least very scarce in cultivation so good on us.  Now for a bit of botanical esoterica.   Enrico Banfi proposed in 2014 that the Alternifolia section of Jasminum to which this belongs, be moved to a new genus, Chrysojasminum and if this gets adopted, then we would have Chrysojasminum humile var. microphyllum.  Do we know how to have fun or what?
