Winter jasmine: For that same profusion of spring yellow on a slightly smaller scale, winter jasmine is hard to beat. This tough little shrub makes a great wiry textural accent with glossy green leaves, and green stems in the off-season, a perfect foil to its cheery, starry flowers in March or April.Winter jasmine (Jasminum nudiflorum, Zones 6-10), does double duty as a trailing groundcover. Though it is a jasmine, its flowers aren't fragrant, but it makes up for that in spades with color. This easy, sprawling, spreading little shrub usually tops out at 4 feet, and will spread to around that much or more. Give it full sun to part shade, and it's happy.
Add some winter cheer. A little retail therapy at your favorite nursery is always a good idea on a gray day. What can you pick up that will give you and your garden a lift? Winter jasmine (Jasminium nudiflorum) is a favorite scrambler of mine for winter; its cheerful yellow flowers last for many months. This lax shrub looks best either being left to tumble over a stone wall or tied up loosely against a fence or pergola and allowed to drape down in an explosion of golden stars.
How to Use ItWinter jasmine is not a true vine, although it is often referred to as such. I consider it a scrambler rather than a climber, and it can fill many roles in the garden. However you use it, be sure to plant it where you can enjoy the color from inside the home on a cold, gray winter day.As a ground cover: Left unchecked winter jasmine will cover the ground with a rather unruly tangle of stems. When grown in this way, it looks best tumbling down a slope or stream bank, where the branches can cascade.To soften retaining walls: One of my favorite ways to grow this is over a retaining stone wall where its young bright green stems and profuse flowers can be readily appreciated.On a fence or arbor: Since winter jasmine does not climb on its own, the stems have to be attached to the fence or arbor posts. There are two easy ways to train its multiple stems.Attach a trellis to the fence or wrap bird netting around the arbor post and tie the branches on loosely with soft twine.Use galvanized wire; add a series of horizontal, parallel lines on a fence or run a length of wire in a spiral fashion up a post using screw eyes to hold the wire in place. The branches can then be tied in the same manner as above.When the branches reach the top of the structure, you can let them drape down in a casual manner. Older branches become woody and can be distinguished from younger stems because they turn brown. At this point they are less flexible, so be sure to tie winter jasmine to its support regularly.

Botanical name: Jasminum nudiflorum Common name: Winter jasmine Origin: Native to China; introduced to the West by the Scottish explorer Robert Fortune in 1843 Where it will grow: Hardy to -10 degrees Fahrenheit (USDA zones 6 to 9; find your zone) Water requirement: Average Light requirement: Full to partial sun Mature size: Up to 10 feet tall and 7 feet wide, depending on how you plant it Benefits and tolerances: Bees enjoy the early source of nectar, and birds may nest in its twiggy branches. Seasonal interest: This is a deciduous vine, but its main season of interest is from November to March, when the leaves have fallen. The bare stems are then studded with an abundance of yellow, star-shaped flowers, each one emerging from a rose-colored bud. When to plant: Spring or fall
