Jasminum mesnyi (Primrose Jasmine)

Primrose Jasmine, Chinese Jasmine, Jasminum primulinum


Spectacular in mass plantings, award-winner Jasminum mesnyi (Primrose Jasmine) is a large, scrambling evergreen shrub with long, arching branches clothed with dark green trifoliolate leaves. In winter or spring, depending on geographic areas, a profusion of sweetly fragrant, semi-double, bright yellow flowers, almost 2 in. across (4 cm), are on display. Fast-growing, Primrose Jasmine is ideal as bank cover (erosion control) since it spreads where the stems touch the ground. It is also very pretty when trailing over fences or walls and perfect for covering unsightly views.

  • Winner of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society
  • Grows up to 6-10 ft. tall (180-300 cm).
  • Performs best in full sun to part shade, in rich organic, well-drained soils. Needs regular to moderate water.
  • Perfect as a climber over trellises or arbors or as ground cover for banks and slopes. Let it trail over fences or walls.
  • Virtually disease free. Keep an eye out for aphids, scale insects and mealybugs.
  • Prune only lightly after bloom by heading back or singly removing older canes.
  • Propagate by semi-hardwood cuttings or by layering in autumn.
  • Native to China
