Buy Jasminum officinale Devon Cream (PBR) jasmine ( syn jasmine Clotted Cream ): A new variety with large, cream flowers

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

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection)

    A superb new cream coloured form of the much loved common jasmine, but with larger flowers and even more fragrance. This versatile, deciduous climber appreciates a sheltered, sunny, well-drained site, and can cope with dry conditions. Since it spreads quickly in all directions, it's ideal for covering a large south or west facing wall or an unsightly garden building. To best appreciate the fragrant flowers, choose a site close to a house entrance or well-used path. In small gardens, it is best planted in a pot and trained up a trellis or wall.

  • Garden care: After flowering remove old and over-crowded shoots. Prune hard in autumn to keep it within bounds, but be warned that flowering will be retarded the following year.

Notes on Jasminum officinale Devon Cream (PBR)

"Soft-cream flowers, larger than usual, pack a more powerful scent on this softly-toned climber for a warm place - sensational close to purple viticella clematis like ‘Etoile Violette"

Vigorous and fragrant

5

Has grown like gangbusters. A shorter flowering season than I expected, but the bees loved it and the whole terrace smelt gorgeous. The colour and leaf shape of the plant make it look attractive even when not in flower. It is also out-competing all other plants nearby, even weeds.

Isolde buy from Crocus again

5

I bought a Jasmine from Crocus a couple of years ago when we moved house and needed to cover a new fence. I was so pleased with the plant that I then bought another 2 of the same last year. All plants have been very successful and I am hopeful that this year the flowers on the Jasmine will look spectacular as my fence is now nicely covered with the spreading Jasmine.

Jasmine Clotted Cream - You're the Best!!

5

I bought this beautiful plant back in March 2015 and planted it near the back entrance to my house next to a climbing Clematis. I thought it would take 2 years or more to start flowering. I just noticed (11th August 2015)that my Jasmine plant has already started flowering - petite flowers with a heavenly fragrance. Many thanks for this lovely addition to my back garden!!

Would this clematis be happy if planted to grow/ scramble through a large Buddleia?

Novice

Hello, It is not an ideal combination as to get the best from the Buddleja, it should be cut back hard each year in early spring - and therefore the jasmine would lose its support.

Helen

I bought this plant years ago and it grow and flowered. My garden was redone and I had to move it a year and a half ago. It now no longer flowers, it does grow leaves so I know it's alive but I dont think it liked the move. Is there anything I can do to help it flower again?

Nicky

These are summer flowering plants, so it is still too early to tell if it will flower this year, however if the top growth was cut back for the move, then this could be the reason that it didn't flower last year. To encourage good flowering, you should make sure it is planted in a warm, sunny spot, and avoid over-feeding.

Helen

I bought this a couple of weeks ago and put it straight in the ground - we've had really hard frost and the plants new leaves are looking very sad - should I prune these off - or has the plant had it?

Round

Hello, No, if it is just the new foliage that has been affected, then you can give it a trim to neaten it up and it should be fine.

Helen

I purchased this plant this year, it has yet to flower. The leaves are now going brown, I wondered if t his is a normal autumnal occasion or if it is dying, I can't see any sign of pests. I would hate to lose it and would be grateful for you advice. Thank you Marion

Dinky

Hello, I am not sure when you purchased your jasmine, but the lack of flowers could be caused by a number of things including a lack of water, light and nutrients, or the plant simply focusing its energies on putting on root growth. Given time and the right conditions however there is no reason why it wont produce flowers. As for the brown leaves, this is a deciduous plant, so it does lose its leaves at this time of the year. Do keep in mind however that it is not fully hardy, so may need some protection (moving to a more sheltered spot or covering with fleece) during the winter months.

Helen

Are these plants safe for children? And are the leaves evergreen? Thank you

new2gardening

Hello there This climber is not listed as poisonous to humans by the RHS, but even so it could still give you a stomach upset or discomfort if eaten, as can many other garden plants. No it isn't evergreen. Hope this helps.

Hi - how tall will these plants be if I buy them? It only says the pot size?

Louise

Hello there These plants in a 3lt pot will be approx 60cm tall when delivered.

Hello, I apologise for the stupid question - but if ordered now, does the plant you deliver come with flowers? Thank you

Moose88

Hello there This climber normally flowers between June to August, so it wouldn't be in flower now, but unfortunately we never can guarantee that any of our plants will be delivered with flowers.

Hi there. You say it grows well in a pot; what size pot would be best please? Annie x

anniep

Hello there I would plant it in a large pot approx 50cm, in a John Innes no 2 or 3 compost, with good drainage, and make sure it is well watered, and fed during the growing season with a high potash fertiliser.

Are the black berries harmful

Pat

Hello there There does seem to some conflicting information on this. Culivated Jasmines rarely produce berries in the UK according to the RHS, but it does seem that they could be poisonous, so as with any other plant, if you are unsure about if the fruits are edible, I definitely would not eat them. Hope this helps

Star Jasmine Hi There, I have a Star Jasmine that was planted in 2007. It's has been in the same spot since then and the vine itself has grown but I have never had a single flower. Obviously I bought the plant to try and get the lovely scent in the garden. I'm a bit baffled as the plant seems to love the spot it's in. I just thought by now I'd have seen some flowers. Can you suggest anything to help it flower?

Joanna Bryan

There are a number of reasons why plants don't flower including too much shade, not enough water or nutrients, or pruning at the wrong time of the year. It can also be caused by the plant putting on new root growth instead of focusing its energies on producing flowers. I am not really sure why yours has not produced buds, but you can often give them a bit of a push by feeding with a high potash fertiliser such as Tomorite.
