Notes for Identification:

Primrose Jasmine (Jasminum mesnyi) is a tall, open, slender stemmed, evergreen shrub which acts like a climber when grown against support.  It has glossy, opposite, pinnate, deep green leaves that have 3 oblong to lance shaped leaflets, 1 1/4-3in (3-8cm) long.

Use Primrose Jasmine (Jasminum mesnyi) to trail over fences or walls. It is spectacular in masses and adds interest to mixed shrub hedges and screens. Use any of the mounding jasmines for erosion control on banks or slopes where their long trailing canelike stems will take root where they touch the ground.

Primrose jasmine blooms on the previous season's growth, so prune soon after flowering. Remove old, less productive canes to ground level, and head back flowering shoots to a strong bud or lower shoot. Shearing would destroy the natural beauty of this graceful shrub. If grown in a restricted space, primrose jasmine may require pruning several times a year.
