I spotted a lovely specimen of Winter Jasmine at the Horticultural Centre of the Pacific on a crisp January day.
What struck me was the mounding form. The long branches creating a cascade of wee yellow flowers. This plant grows in a fenced area protected from our urban blacktail deer.
I’m now suspicious the deer nibble at the Jasmine I’ve been weaving through our trellis.
Now that our jasmine covers most of the lattice, I’ll start an experiment. This spring, I’ll let any of the new branches grow – – no more weaving. We’ll see if we get some long drapes similar to the Jasmine at HCP.
- Will the deer nibble the branches?
- Or will we have a waterfall of yellow next December?
Cross your fingers.
