Originally from Chile, this glorious white flowering climber produces umbels of highly fragrant giant jasmine-esque flowers for several months from summer into autumn. The sweet vanilla fragrance is best enjoyed in the evening on a still night where you can drink in the heady scent while enjoying the last days of summer. Wish contrasting lush green foliage that persists in warmer climates, Chilean Jasmine has earned an RHS Award of Garden Merit for its garden worthiness and big impact as a fast growing low maintenance climber. Long bean-like fruit pods after flowering are a decorative additional feature.
Plant in an enriched soil. Grows best in full sun with some protection for the hot afternoon exponsure in areas with hot dry summers. Water regularly during dry periods. Prune in late winter or early spring to promote compact, dense growth and encourage flower formation. Tolerant of frost and cold conditions, plant will become deciduous in areas prone to cold temperatures, but will recover as the weather warms in spring.
