Jasmine plant in North West, US

priceline(wa)May 8, 2005

I am planning to purchase and grow Jasmine plants here in seattle area. I heard it will be ok in summer, but die during winter. Is that true? Is there any other types of jasmine plants I can grow in this area? THanks

Jasmine is in general half-hardy, some are fully hardy. Otherwise, officinale I'd expect to survive in your area, along with beesianum and stephanense.

so do you think officinale, beesianum and stephanense will survive all year long in my area? I am very new to gardening, BTW if anybody knows where can I get these.. please post here. Thanks

Jasminum officinale and J. x stephanense can be purchased from local garden centers. J. beesianum is less easily located, but doesn't smell anyway.

Try THE PLANT LOCATOR - WESTERN REGION (Black-Eyed Susans/Timber) for unusual plants.

I think they should survive all year long, it'll look like it has died back in winter, but it will come back in mid/late spring. You may prefer a trachelospermum jasminoides though, even hardier and smells more strongly of jasmine/similar. Both officinale and trachelospermum are very difficult to kill.

Tracelospermum is less hardy, not more.

Hm, well the rhs state it as being fully hardy, the officinale being stated as half hardy. Either way they're both fully hardy here.
