About Jazz

This Southern Belle is as feisty as she is fabulous. While she hails originally from Southeastern Asia, Jazz is most popular in the Southern United States (hence her nickname of Confederate jasmine). As a climber, she's always reaching for the top, and is a strong and sturdy gal despite her delicate looks. She's resilient to most weather conditions and very independent - Jazz can take care of herself.

Uzbekistan legend also has it that Jazz would judge travelling traders on their character before pointing them in the right direction. Her starry-looking, fragrant blooms are also frequently used in high-end perfumes and incense. Fittingly, she's often associated with love, beauty, and sensuality.

How to care for Jazz (Climbing jasmine)

The basics

Though she'd prefer to sprawl out in the sun all day, Jazz can easily adjust to tolerate partial or full shade, and can withstand cold better than other types of jasmine.

She's a climber, and left to her own devices will easily cover railings, walls, or the ground under her. Take care to cut her down all the way to the ground if she's getting too wild.

If you're keeping her in a pot, she'll need some extra nutrients to keep her growing - give her some fertiliser twice a year in this case.

When transferring her into a new pot or a garden bed, plant her in our multi-purpose compost with some drainage material at the bottom.

Going the extra mile

Spider mites can occasionally pose a problem for Jazz - just get her some neem oil and it'll keep them away.

Fertilise her before she blooms in early spring - if she's getting too big for her pot, this is also a good time to transfer her to a larger one.
