PLANT OF THE WEEK

Tricolour Jasmine

Last week I asked if you liked the colour pink in your garden?

This next plant doesn’t have significant flowers but does have pink in it’s leaves.

Better still, it grows in shade, under trees and in other difficult spots where you might find it hard to get something to grow.

Let’s find out about this plant.

I'm talking with the plant panel were Karen Smith, editor of Hort Journal www.hortjournal.com.au and Jeremy Critchley, The Green Gallery wholesale nursery owner. www.thegreengallery.com.au

PLAY: Star Jasmine tri-colour_9th August_2017

Tricolour Jasmine is nothing like the Chinese Star Jasmine because it doesn’t have those perfumed flowers and doesn’t need a whip and a chair to keep it under control.

Ahem, whip and chair borrowed from Peter Nixon Garden Designer that is.

As long as you don’t put it into full sun or afternoon sun, you won’t get burnt leaves.

Another one of those low maintenance plants that horticulturalists say doesn’t really exist. But here it is.
