Jasminum mesnyi

Jasminum mesnyi (primrose jasmine) is a species of flowering plant in the family Oleaceae, native to Vietnam and southern China (Guizhou, Sichuan, Yunnan). It is also reportedly naturalized in Mexico, Honduras and parts of the southern United States (Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, Arizona).[1][2][3]

Jasminum mesnyi is a scrambling evergreen shrub growing to 3 m (10 ft) tall by 1–2 m (3–7 ft) wide, with fragrant yellow semi-double flowers in spring and summer. It is not frost-hardy. With suitable support it can be grown as a slender climber, though in confined spaces it will require regular pruning.[2][4][5][6]

Jasminum mesnyi has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[7]
