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.
This is a lovely deciduous scrambling twining and vining shrub from Nepal with scented narrow tubular yellow flowers in clusters followed in fall by black pea-like fruit. Quite a nice alternative for the small arbor or trellis on a wall. And we are pretty sure it is deer resistant as well!
A spectacular gold-foliaged form of the Poet's Jasmine vine. This is surprisingly hardy - we observed a thriving plant at Hedgerows Nursery which endured 3 nights of zero Dec 2010 no problemo. Awesome with big Ceanothus or purple Sambucus. 1" fragrant white flowers in summer.
Hardy dwarf Jasmine from Himal Pradesh in India. This is an ideal little rock garden candidate or if you are looking for a small shrub for that special nook, look no further. Small yellow flowers lightly scented are scattered among the evergreen leaves all summer. Tolerant of dry, deer aren't interested, no maintenance needed.
The perfection of presence so inherent to Japan oozes from the stomata of this Nipponese woodlander. Pinkish new growth with lavender tones to the rounded foliage is meant to pair with the simple light lavender flowers. Allied to our eastern Jeffersonia diphylla like a Lexus SUV to a F150 pickup, a comparison not meant to disparage or annoy champions of the lovely J. diphylla. These are from our own divisions.
We were gifted this little green "roller" from John Grimshaw, Director of the Yorkshire Arboretum at Castle Howard. As he handed us a nondescript pup, we wondered what magical thing attended this to earn a place in his exquisite collection. "This is from the garden of Carl Linnaeus" STFU! The Father of Binomial Nomenclature!?! Linnaeus & Grimshaw - now that's provenance!
