Winter Jasmine (Jasminum nudiflorum) is a vine-like shrub that can also be trained to grow on a trellis or the side of a wall.
It produces bright yellow flowers in the late winter to early spring. But unlike some of the other jasmines, they do not have a scent.
Although winter jasmine can grow in the shade, you will get the best blooms if it gets at least part sun.
The branches root where the touch the ground, so it will spread if left to its own devices. To keep it in check, prune as needed in early spring after it has finished flowering.
This plant is a winner of the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
