Jasmine Revolutum

 

I have bought another climber for the side garden. It is a Jasmine called Revolutum and has bright yellow flowers. I shall keep it in the pot for a little while before I plant it out. When in the garden it will be protected by a rigid netting cover to keep off the worst of the wind. This should complete the planting in the side garden. Originating in the dry valleys of the Himalayas Jasmine Revolutum will remainĀ evergreen in sheltered positions. Plants are bushy and make very beautiful free-standing shrubs, but if grown against a wall the stems will climb and may be trained in. The richly coloured, lightly scented flowers are borne on old stems and the tips of new growth, so providing a long season of colour. Revolutum has the best colour and strongest fragrance. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
