This small jasmine has begun blooming as we exit winter in central Cali.

Neagari style in Gary Wood pot.

Jasminum nudiflorum

Since we're showing off Winter Jasmine I thought post a couple pics. You guys have to promise not to judge me on these though. They were just collected this last year (from my garden) and they have absolutely no refinement and they're way over-potted. They will be cut way back once they flower a little more (I'm just enjoying them). I'll also reduce the root mass and get them in smaller pots with time.

Smoke and Jason too,
Brent's catalog seez that "Grows best in cool climates." Smoke, I know you don't qualify as living in a cool climate (I don't want to be callus, but I'd guess that you'd raise any microclimate by 1 degree F. just through a glance of your steely blue eyes). Jason, being Western Oregon, you may qualify. So, do you guys have a secret, or do these not grow at their best?

Well....just wanted to make sure no one thought this represented my idea of refined bonsai or even bonsai for that matter.;) I just needed something to brighten up the gray.

As for the boxer...he likes his ears intact. Ask him.

As for whether jasminum nudiflorum grow better in a cooler zone, I'm not sure. They're listed to grow in USDA zones 6-10. I've only grown them in western Washington (Puget Sound region) and western Oregon. They seem to thrive and don't look stilted. They start from cuttings with ease. I've accidentally started them when my prunings just fell on the ground. Maybe some zone 6 er's have some with 4 inch trunks....but I doubt it.
