I'd like to train a jasmine to cover a pergola and would like it to be fully hardy and evergreen with white flowers, can anyone suggest a suitable variety?
I thought I had it with the sambac but turns out it isn't fully hardy
Thanks in advance!
The only white flowered evergreen jasmine I can think of is Trachelospermum jasminoides, but it needs a sheltered spot. Having said that, mine has survived -7°. It looked a bit unhappy one cold winter and lost leaves but when spring came it grew back.
oh hey, thanks for the reply. yes, i was thinking about a star jasmine but it's not a true jasmine so disregarded it. i think i may have to rethink my plan and go with a clematis or something... back to the drawing board!
i'm still keen on getting a sambac for a pot but can't find them ANYWHERE!!

thanks so much! yes, it's going in a pot outdoors in the summer and indoors when it gets chilly! i want to grow it for the flowers so i can start making jasmine green tea
