Jasminum officinale 'Fiona Sunrise' - Jasmine
Availability: In stock
This superb form of the Chinese scrambler, Jasminum officinale boasts brilliant gold foliage that looks beautiful. The stems are also home to deliciously fragrant flowers throughout the summer. Lest we forget, tea from this gem is drunk for its aphrodisiac qualities, and who could forget that carrying the flowers attracts money and wealth. This golden leaved form of the very fragrant climbing summer flowering Jasmine, is capable of scrambling in its first year, given support, to a height of 12ft, and its white flowers to exude a delicious perfume all summer long. Once established, it is best pruned regularly each spring, removing some of the older growths to prevent congestion. With care, it can make a good companion to a bright red climbing rose. An additional facet to this plant is the reddy brown growth that shows within the leaf shoots, that contrast well with the gold of the leaves as they emerge. Supplied in approx 2-3 litre containers.
