Winter-Blooming Jasmine

My Jasminium nudifolium, or winter jasmine, despite the frigid temperatures started to bloom today!  The bright yellow tubular flowers stand out against a grey December sky, and they are a favorite with the hummingbirds that winter over in my garden.  It is a shrubby vine, so it does need a bit of space, but looks wonderful with a rock wall as a backdrop.  It does not have the fragrance that summer-blooming jasmine does.  It looks good underplanted with snowdrops and grape hyacinth.  Very easy to grow, and blooms during the bleakest time of year–I love this plant!

Try it in your garden!
