Buy Jasminum nudiflorum winter jasmine: Cheerful yellow flowers in winter

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: January to March
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Cheerful yellow flowers appear on bare stems in winter and early spring and really brighten up a dark winter day. This vigorous shrubby climber is easy to grow and easy to train on wires or a trellis, but it looks just as attractive left to scramble freely over low walls. Bright green stems, even in winter, and dark green shoots add to the appeal of this lovely climber. Give it space to express itself.

  • Garden care: Prune back after flowering to strong buds or young lower branches. On older plants, cut back about a quarter of the old shoots to the base.

Healthy plant, growing well. Need several to cover any sort


East facing wall



A nice sturdy plant.


I have planted one of these wherever I have lived. I love the bright yellow bloom against the dark green stem and leaf, provides winter cheer. Makes a substantial shrub, and can give shelter to insects and birds when grown.

A very good winter flowering plant


Chosen to give us winter colour from our window




I have always had such success with your plants.


It is thriving in our garden

A sturdy plant


An easy to establish winter flowering plant. Used on its own as a feature against a split bamboo fence. Needs trimming to keep a nice shape and prevent a wild jumble of branches.






To cover part of a plain north facing wooden fence




Lovely plant


I gave this to my sister and she has been happy with the plant although it has been quite slow growing as I don't think it is in the best position.

Mandy the gardening lover





It is disappointing that the Jasminum nudiflorum has not flowered this year, but it is alive and looks healthy.

Jasminum nudiflorum

I have searched and searched and searched the internet rather than asking another Q here but with no success. I was looking to see how you train a winter flowering jasmine on a trellis? I originally was going to plant this on a shed wall but decided to plant it on a north facing 5 foot fence panel. I wanted to know how to train it and how to prune it to keep it to 5 footish? Plenty of people say that so many winter flowering jasmines are badly pruned but perhaps that is because nobody seems to provide drawings/videos or anything about HOW to train on a fence/trellis. :O( Can you help please?


Hello, There are no hard and fast rules, but if you have a section of fence you would like it to cover, then the first thing you need to do is provide some form of support. This could be a trellis pannel or a series of stout wires. The important thing is that they are firmly attached. Then plant the jasmine around 30 - 45cm away from the base of the fence and using bamboo canes support the lax stems, splaying them out, but back towards the fence. When the stems are tall enough start to tie them onto the supports with the aim of forming an evenly spaced, permanent framework of branches. Continue to tie in the stems as the plant grows until it has reached the desired height and spread. When it comes to pruning, this should be done in early spring, immediately after flowering. The aim is to cut back the flowered stems that are not needed to fill the space to within 2 or 3 buds from the point where they join the main framework.


I have a shed wall 12 foot long and want to plant Jasminum nudiflorum on it for winter colour what could I team with this for summer colour? Could I get a Lonicera and Clematis or would these take over the Jasminum thanks?

Hello, This plant has an eventual height and spread of around 3m, so if you have a large shed (and enough room to house another plant), then you could definitely consider a more compact honeysuckle such as Lonicera 'Rhubarb and Custard' - please click on the following link to go straight to it. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/lonicera-periclymenum-rhubarb-and-custard/classid.2000020958/


Hi, I was wondering if this jasmine would be happy in a pot for few years or does it need planting straight to the ground? Also, if I would buy it now (start of Sept), will it flower already this coming winter, or is the plant too small? Thank you!


Hello, It is possible to grow this in a large pot for a couplee of years (provided it is kept well fed and watered), however ultimately it will be happier planted out in the ground. As for flowering, you may get a smattering of flowers in the first year, although we cannot guarantee this.


Hello dear Crocus, Firstly thank you for all the plants I bought from you. They are doing well. I am thinking about some colour in winter. Could I train winter jasmin up an arch and combine it with deciduous honeysuckle or climbing rose? I would be very grateful if you could help me to understand if this project of mine is doable. All best. Tatiana


Hello, Yes, it is possible to tie this jasmine into an arch, but the arch will need to be large and sturdy - and you could then train something up the other side too.


Winter flowering shrubs and climbers to plant with new hedge Hello, I have newly planted a hedge (made up from Hornbeam, Rosa rugosa, Blackthorn, Cornus, Hawthorn and Hazel) about 50ft long. I have been told that if I was to plant amongst the hedge some winter flowering Clematis such as 'Wisley Cream' it would give some nice colour these bleak winter months when the hedge is bare of foliage. The hedge is south facing and although the ground is ???good??? heavy Cambridgeshire clay the hedge has been planted in a trench back filled with leaf mulch, chipped wood and spent peat. Although I have said about in-planting Clematis in the hedge, I am open to other plant suggestions if you have any. Regards Terry

Hello Terry, If you click on the following link it will take you to all our winter flowering climbers - of which the Jasminum is tougher and more like a shrub. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/plcid.15/vid.204/ Alternatively, this link will take you to all our winter flowering shrubs. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/shrubs/plcid.1/vid.204/ I hope this helps.

Plants suitable for patio pots Hello I wanted to enquire if you have a Sarocococca hookeriana var. humilis, I looked online but it's not listed. I am askng for that particular plant, because I only have a patio and want plants that won't grow to an enormous size or require spectacular care. A rosemary and a dwarf syringa I bought from you are doing very well. Plants always arrive in very good condition which I really appreciate. A Myrtus communis subsp. 'Tarentina' which I potted up immediately in a larger pot suffered shock I think, - I wonder what you know about this myrtle? I am wanting to grow plants on a small patio in containers and wonder if the following plants are suitable:- Sarcococca hookeriana var. humilis (if you have got it) or a Sarcococca hookeriana digyna (which is in your listings). Winter Jasmine, or any of the other Jasmines, Wintersweet, Witchhazel, Abelia grandiflora but would this be too large for my patio- I am thinking of winter cheer with its red berries, and Nandina Domestica. Many thanks Bernadette

Bernadette Matthews

Hello Bernadette, I'm afraid we do not sell Sacrocococca hookeriana var. humilis, but the other two we list will be fine in a large pot as long as they are kept well fed and watered. It is my experience that most plants will cope if the pot is big enough and they are well looked after, however larger plants like the Jasminum nudiflorum, Wintersweet, Witchhazel, Abelia or Nandinas will eventually run out of steam and need to be placed into the garden. You should however be able to get a good few years from them. As for the Myrtus, I have not heard that they particularly dislike being moved, but as they are not fully hardy they need protection in winter. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

What can I grow against a north facing wall? We own a bungalow in the highlands of Scotland which is a holiday home. The front is North Facing on to a natural woodland hill so is quite shady although sheltered. We would like to grow something against the front to provide colour, smell and interest. Can you help?
