In winter its stems and foliage acquire a pronounced, beautiful and decorative coral-red all through the height of the plant.
In addition to its winter colours, Trachelospermum jasminoides Winter Ruby® has other advantages over typical jasmines. Its elegant foliage is livelier and brighter. It resists frost better (as low as -17°C), is more persistent and retains its leaves better which don't dry out in winter.
Its generous white flowers bloom slightly earlier (between May and July in full sun, from June to September where it's partly shaded) and are all just as perfumed. It doesn't grow as tall (2 to 3 m) as typical jasmines (up to 5 m or more).
For its compact form, its natural branching and abundant flowering, Winter Ruby® is an ideal variety for growing in pots with supports of 40 cm to 1.5 m.
Needs no particular attention. Prune excess growth at the end of winter in order to maintain its compactness.
