Tracleospermum jasminoides or Star jasmine
A well developed and healthy looking specimen was planted in my new garden to cover some trellis last December. It looked fine all winter but when it started to grow, all new shoots were yellow. It developed what I expected to be flower buds and I have been waiting patiently for them to come out. On close inspection this morning it appears that the 'buds' have turned into very tiny lime yellow stars which I assume are the open 'flowers'. They don't smell and are not petals. It was planted in a base of new, good quality topsoil with the addition of general purpose compost - lots of it. I've kept it moist and tied the original growth to the trellis. The new growth is not long enough to tie in. What have I done wrong? I've trawled the internet for ideas but without success. The RHS say that it is generally disease free. Thank you for reading this and for any replies.
