The Jasmine with its mass of beautiful color and incredible spring and summer aroma, creates a special look and smell in any outdoor garden. This plant can be a very simple solution to a problem area in your garden.

A variety of colors make up the family. There are an assortment of different mixtures that will grow in many climatic zones. It is best known as a tropical or sub-tropical plant. This specimen can be considered deciduous or evergreen depending on your location. In colder zones, the Jasmine can be potted and brought inside or to a greenhouse. The temperature shouldn't get below 55°F.

Let's talk about some of the unique characteristics of this gorgeous plant. The colors can range from the popular yellow, to white, pink and purple. For us here in the southern part of the United States, it is readily available in yellow and white.

This plant does wonderful growing on a trellis, rock walls, fence, or as a trained upright. It can be grown naturally but should be pruned back in the fall. Also, you should dead head the flowers after blooming.

Notice how the plants just easily drape over the rock wall creating a natural look. The color of the fence gives this mass of flowers the focal point in the backdrop of the garden. It's a wonderful specie to compliment a wide range of different specimens.

This plant specimen loves full sun but has been known to do well in partial shade. Herbee did an experiment a few years back and planted a Lemon Drop variety underneath a Variegated Privet.

Herbee Shares A Tip


The Jasmine can grow as a bush or shrub. It also is grown as a vine. Herbee has a shrub out in an open area in his yard.

Every spring the bright yellow flowers emerge in the warm sunshine. The blooms open up to a mass of vibrant color. Here in the south, this is a sure sign that spring and warmth is definitely in the air.

This shrub can be pruned back if your geographic location has a frost in the colder months. Trim back before the first hard frost.

The Lemon Drop is a smaller version and does very well cascading over natural or decorative rocks. The plant sprawled out beautifully over the rock but has not produced any blossoms. Below are a couple of different pictures of the Lemon Drop.

The Pink Jasmine is one of the fastest growers and will do well in zones eight through ten. The flowers are actually white but have a pink tone to the blossoms. It will reach up to twenty feet tall and is wonderful climbing up a trellis. A trellis along the front of a brick or stone foundation and the flowers compliment the color tones in the masonry.

Question From A Reader On Night Jasmine

My night blooming jasmine's leaves are turning yellow from the leaf stem outward and falling off. New shoots are fine until they reach a foot or so high, then start yellowing.

It sits in a large pot, south sliding door and gets watered once a week or so. It has been re-potted a month or so ago with pre-fertilized potting soil. It has grown wonderfully in this pot for years.

Hi, Herbee here. Leaves turning yellow usually means the bush is lacking water, or too much water. You said you were watering once a week or so. The night bloomer can tolerate moderate drought.Since you have it in a container, make sure you check below the top layer of the soil. Container plants need to be watered more than ground plants.

There is always a chance that your plant may be in some form of shock, with the new potting soil. Double check on how much pre-fertilizer there is in the potting soil. Too much fertilizer can burn roots and turn leaves yellow. I would recommend to continue to monitor the plant.

Check the soil, and also check the other ingredients in the potting soil. A quality potting soil will be light weight, with some vermiculite in it. Please keep us up to date on how your night bloomer is doing. Thanks, from your guide to healthy plants!

The Winter Jasmine is one of the most versatile plants of this specie. It can grow in zones six through ten. The Margarita mixture does well in northern climates. This plant has a mass of yellow blooms in the spring and summer months. It can do well in shaded areas and great for gardens, patios, arbors, and planters.

One of the most interesting accent plant to place in the same garden with a Jasmine is the Golden Euonymus. The Euonymus is an evergreen shrub that will grow four to five feet high and wide. The shiny variegated green and yellow leaves makes this plant striking from a distance. Take a look at the picture below. This Euonymus was trained around a mailbox and has a great curbside look.

The Golden Euonymus grows great in zones four through eleven and does well in most soil conditions. Once established the Euonymus will grow healthy with a regular watering schedule. These two plant specimens create such a nice appearance in any garden setting.

Another option with the golden variety is a large garden bed of several different beds. You can incorporate the Loropetalum and a variegated Cypress.

Take a look at these three plants put together. Talk about vibrant colors and different textures. Herbee loves to design these three into the same bed. It's a beautiful contrast of colors. You can stagger them when planting, or do a mass of colors. It's a great look if you want to spruce up your gardens or landscape.

A Mop or Lemon Thread Cypress will do great. Talk about a colorful lush landscape. Herbee has designed using all four of these plant specimens in different style gardens. Add some evergreen trees in the back ground with some perennial flowers throughout the bed.

A fantastic variety is the Jasmine Confederate - Favorite Intensely Fragrant Easy to Grow Vine Jasmine Starter Plants 6 Pack.

This is a very simple solution for a drab area of a property. The Jasmine can give you a wealth of beauty during the spring and summer months. In Asia, as well as in the southern United States, it can grow wild. Combined with the Golden Euonymus, this plant combo can only turn into only one thing, a big winner for you.
