Description: Bright yellow flowers on some species of this vine brighten up the winter garden. It can also be grown as a shrub. The flowers are 3/4 to 1-inch across and generally appear before the leaves, which are deciduous. The vines are graceful, green, and slender.
Cultivation: Winter jasmine needs full sun or partial shade but is adaptable to a wide range of conditions. It is considered hardy and easy to grow, and most species withstand cold particularly well. Selective pruning of dead branches will improve the health and appearance of the plant.
