Winter jasmine


Jasminum nudiflorum on the floriferous wrought iron fence of the Liz Christy Garden on East Houston Street, on a cold, cold day.


Good for fences (where it must be tied), steep slopes, and cascading rock gardens, it blooms a little in shade and very well in full sun. Reputedly hardy from Zones 6 - 9.

  1. That's really gorgeous - and so encouraging of spring to come. Pouring rain here today (like NYC I am guessing?) but the Carolina Jasmine is covered with buds... soon maybe.

  5. Some plants deserve fame. I've been driving past this one for many years, on my way to work. Amazing how early it sometimes blooms. There's a large red Camellia back toward the 2nd Ave. end.

  6. This is blooming right now in NYC?????? Wow, in upstate NY we are still covered with snow! I can't get to my pussy willow bushes to cut and force!
