Star Jasmine Star of Tuscany - flowers as fragrant as jasmine
Well-smelling and golden carpet of flowers - for half a year! Star Jasmine Star of Toscane
The Tuscan Star of Toscane, Latin Trachelospermum jasminoides Selbra, is a dainty, yellow jasmine flower that grows in groups and is very flowery. Star of Toscane is completely undemanding and looks splendid in any garden, along fences, walls, on rocks, in pots and as a screen, wall ornament, archway or as a uniquely beautiful and incomparable hedge (4 jasmine plants for 1 metre hedge). The many yellow flowers have a more pleasant scent than jasmine, somewhat like vanilla. Scented jasmine always has exactly five petals, which gives the jasmine flowers, which bloom continuously from June to October, the appearance of little stars. They are insect-friendly and popular with our native butterflies and moths. Their brilliant golden yellow colour contrasts well with the small, dark green and oval flowers. The undemanding jasmine belongs to the oleander family. Like a shimmering golden carpet, the light-hungry jasmine plant spills over beds and planting troughs in sun or partial shade.
Customers will love the star jasmine!
For half a year, the dense-growing, easy-care Tuscan Star Jasmine delights with its unforgettable flowering splendour. This makes the jasmine plant a dream candidate for any scented garden, company garden, moon garden, Mediterranean or vertical garden (climbing aids are mounted vertically on the wall; jasmine climbs üppig like a vanilla scented wall on any trellis, covering it and becoming the perfect organic wall decoration). Jasmine flowers need a warm wall in the back; they will grow a moderate 4 or 5 metres high. In the garden they need a trellis or bamboo poles! Jasmine flowers thrive just as well at the edge of the forest as in open spaces and are the ideal ground cover (you no longer need to weed them out). Jasmine plants can easily withstand periods of drought, so you can simply go on holiday or visit. If you give it a little water or fertiliser now and then in summer, the Tuscan star is still grateful. It can be pruned easily if you wish, decorative topiary is also attractive. Jasmine flowers are hardy down to 10 degrees below zero, so watering once a winter is enough. Plants can also be kept in the garden or greenhouse, in the staircase or in an unheated room. Trachelospermum jasminoides Selbra, Star of Toscane can be planted all year round. Its ideal complement is the robust, purple-flowering wood vine Jackmanii; it is also a perennial and summer bloomer, a climbing shrub that flowers at the same time.
