information on Jasminum beesianium



I bought one years ago in 'Woolies'. It was supposed to be a well behaved climber. It became very bulky at the base although it did climb up about 6', it wasn't as spectacular as I'd anticipated. I have since moved it to a less prominent position, where it's not as happy as it was, but it's not taking over either. I found it to be hardier than expected too. It's likes to be in full sun, out if the wind and will need a bit of room, at least 3' each way. It's an attractive plant with a habit similar to winter jasmine. The flowers are a very pretty pink, but they are smaller than the officinale. It is happy in ordinary soil, but not waterlogged especially over the winter.
