Trachelospermum Asiaticum has much in common with its cousin, T. Jasminoides but is a little slower in its growth habit and has rather smaller but very high gloss evergreen leaves. The clusters of highly perfumed flowers are creamy rather than pure white and are produced over much of the summer period. Choose a sunny sheltered position facing south or west. Fertile well drained soil. To 20 feet. 2 or 3 litre deep pot.
Trachelospermums don't require much in the way of pruning, but keep in shape by cutting back as required in early spring. Pruning tips of branching stems will encourage side growth.
We have a couple of these as speciments in big patio pots and they do look rather nice, though we say it ourselves.
Trachelospermum Asiaticum is a hardy evergreen climber with glossy leaves and creamy white scented star shaped flowers in summer suitable sunny wall or fence.
