Early Jasmine in the GardenTags plant encyclopedia

Cestrum fasciculatum var. 'Newellii'

 

Early Jasmine

Cestrum are native to warm temperate to tropical regions. They are commonly called jessamines (from "jasmine", due to their fragant flowers). Several species are grown as ornamental plants for their strongly scented flowers. Some are invasive species. 'Newellii' produces an abundance of showy clusters of tubular crimson flowers at the branch tips from spring through autumn. Blooms are followed by reddish purple ornamental berries. Use for a hedge, a bold specimen, or as a container plant.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Grow cestrum in a fertile, well-draining, non-alkaline soil in full sun (or partial sun in hot summer regions). In frost-prone areas it will be killed to the ground and resprout in the spring as soil warms. Use it as a large accent shrub in the mixed border or wildlife garden. Its flowers and foliage stems can be used as a cutflower. Give beds and borders a kick start by feeding in spring with a slow release fertiliser, before planting and before plants have put on too much growth. This is known as top dressing.
