Winter Jasmine

The Winter Jasmine is a true delight to see in the cold days of winter. Often one of the first blooms of winter, this plant blooms from late December to mid-January.

While the Winter Jasmine may look like it climbs, it creeps and scrambles over landscapes and structures. This plant can, however, be tied to a trellis to help it climb.

Available in variegated and green varieties, Daphne odora can add a sweet scent to not only your landscape but also beautiful pink or white blooms. Plant this winter-blooming plant in partial shade.
