Jasminum are evergreen or deciduous shrubs, many climbing by twining stems bearing usually pinnate leaves, and star-shaped white, pink or yellow flowers, which are sometimes very fragrant. Fruit a black berry.
'Clotted Cream' is a larger-flowered cultivar than the species. Flowering from June until August, it has a hint of pink in bud and light lemon and cream in flower.
To bring out the sweet fragrance of the flowers, the ideal planting position should be warm, sunny and sheltered but it will cope with partial shade and colder positions provided the soil is well-drained. May suffer from frost damage in colder winters.
