Title: Jasminum mesnyi
Post by: Umbrian on April 07, 2017, 10:28:12 AM
I have always regarded this as a climber, albeit needing support, or a lax bush. Mine is magnificent this year revelling in the early warm weather we have been enjoying for weeks now. Yesterday however I was amazed to see a very thick, neat hedge of Jasminum mesnyi -  covered in flowers. Knowing the Italian's penchant for pruning most things very hard I don't suppose I should have been surprised - the amount of bloom was amazing though, and quite stunning.

My Grandfather had a massive old one trained inside a sturdy frame about 8' tall that was allowed to cascade down in every direction. It formed a private garden room inside which added to it's year long fascination. It was quite a secret magical place to hide especially on a warm days when we were children, always benign, cool, lovely  and fascinating.  :)
