Chinese Star Jasmines

Because our house is on a slope, these posts at the entrance are supposed to help it look more balanced and level. Now you cannot see the posts much as they are covered with Chinese Star Jasmines.

The jasmines grow quite slow to start with but after a year they will grow fast enough that you have to start pruning them. I prune these guys hard once or twice a year. The blooms are in full swing from December to January and the smell is quite intoxicating at night.

I can imagine the passersby stop and take a deep breath and inhale the sweet smell of these jasmines. I consider myself doing public a service – giving them a natural air re-freshener for 2+ months.
