How To Grow Hardy Jasmine
Jasmine officinale also known as the “Hardy Jasmine” is revered for its ability to be grown in cold climates. In freezing climates, it’s a deciduous vine and can be grown outside down to 0°F. The trick is the depth of the cold. If the cold dip is moderate and doesn’t remain at zero for long, your jasmine will survive the winter without protection. This jasmine has strong roots.
Growing Tips For Colder Regions
• Outside, plant against a wall or a protective area and mulch the base with straw (12 inches or more).
• At zone 6 and higher, the full vine should survive the winter, otherwise mulch base to bring some of the vine through the winter.
• Flowering cycle begins in July and lasts until frost.
