Buy Trachelospermum jasminoides Star of Toscana ('Selbra') (PBR) yellow star jasmine: Scented yellow flowers over a long period

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

    A new and attractive woody, evergreen climber with rich, dark green leaves which often turn bronze in winter. Unlike its well-established and much-loved relative, its flowers are yellow (from creamy to buttery), but they still have the same sweet perfume. These appear in clusters over a long period from summer to autumn. Happiest grown against a warm, sunny wall in milder areas, it is said to be hardy to -10C, but in areas prone to severe frosts it will need winter protection.

  • Garden care: After flowering has finished prune back to fit the available space. In frost-prone areas, grow in pots of loam-based potting compost such as John Innes No.2 and move to a sheltered spot in winter.

Lovely jasmine


Lovely jasmine,has taken well in a large pot growing up the leg of a pergola.Nice fragrance during the summer evenings.




Growing beautifully up a trellis


I have this in a pot on the patio and it's growing very well and putting out lots of new shoots.






It's not yellow by any stretch of the imagination and I wonder if I have been sent the correct plant. It's imported I think and only refers to trachleospermum yellow, no mention of Star of Toscana. The flower is white with a yellow centre and nothing like the illustration. Not what I expect from Crocus.

Hi, when I bought it a month ago, it was blooming nicely. I planted it into a pot, used multipurpose compost and fertilizer, placed it in our sunny garden and water it regularly. However, since I planted it into the pot, flowers started wilting and falling. What could be a reason? Thanks


We have had an exceptionally warm start to the year, so many plants have started to flower earlier than they normally would. It is worth keeping in mind however that each flower will only last a few weeks, so this sound like a normal part of the plants life cycle.


I bought Trachelospermum jasminoides star of toscana ('Selbra') (PBR) 3 years ago. It has never flowered. It is growing well in a sunny spot. It is fed regularly. Will it ever flower?

Constant gardener

There is no reason why it wont start producing flowers eventually (given the right conditions), and it sounds as though it is getting treated well. I wonder though what you are feeding it with - and perhaps you could try something with higher levels of potash.


can I grow yellow star jasmine in a large ( 3ft tall) pot? it would be sharing with a patio wisteria.


Hello, While the Trachelospermum would be ok on its own in a really large pot for several years, I would not advise planting it with a Wisteria as ultimately both plants are large, so would much prefer being planted in the ground.


Would trachelospermum jasmine ideas thrive in Surrey grown against a fence which is south west facing ?


Hello, I'm afraif I cannot be too specific as it will really depend on the conditions in your garden, however if the spot is reasonably sheltered and the soil is not too heavy and wet (particularly in winter), then you should have a good chance.


does the Trachelospermum jasminoides Star of Toscana smell as strong as the white Trachelospermum jasminoides?


Hello there As far as I know the scent is much the same as Trachelospermum jasminoides.

Are these plants self-supporting i.e. would they cling without additional support to a brick wall, similar to the way, say, ivy would?


Hello there No this climber needs a support like a trellis or frame to twist up.

I would like to plant an evergreen jasmine on an open metal fence in full sun, subject to strong westerly winds. I like the Star of Toscane but would T Asiaticum Goshiki, T Variegatum or T Wilsonii be better? The soil seems to be tending towards clay. I'm mostly interested in successful growth as this borders a neighbour's property and l want it to look good for them too.

Hello, All the Trachelospermums need a relatively sheltered spot to thrive, so they may not be suitable for the exposed spot you have in mind.


I have a 3 yr old Trachelospernum Jasminoides, looks v healthy & happy, growing well to top of porch & now coming across -but never flowered! HELP!


Hello, If it is getting plenty of sun, water and fertiliser then you could give it a bit of a push by feeding with a fertiliser that is high in Potash. The best would be either Sulphate of Potash or Tomorite - just make sure you follow the directions.


We are looking for some kind of hardy evergreen climbing plant to form a nice and neat door arch. It will be east facing and partially shaded with a large tree in front of our door on the pedestrian pavement. Would you recommend this plant to be easily trimmed to form the shape and ok to grow in partially shaded east facing location?


Hello, Unfortunately this climber is not fully hardy and it does prefer a sunnier spot, so it would not be ideal. A better option would be Hedera helix Glacier - please click on the following link to go straight to it.


Hi, bought this from you last autumn and we are waiting for it to get going this year, how high will it grow this year roughly do you think? Also I planted it slightly lower than the ground level, was this the right thing to do? thanks


Hello, Ideally these should be planted so the soil level is the same as it was in the pot. As for growth rate, this is tricky as it largely depends on external factors such as the available water, light and nutrients. It has to be said that these are not the fastest growing climbers though - at least until they get well established, so you may need to be patient.
