White jasmine or summer jasmine is a perennial climbing plant that blooms from June to September. This variety, hardy and resistant to diseases, can withstand temperatures up to -12 °. Its long twining branches, up to 5 to 9 meters in length, can elegantly climb along a terrace, a pergola or a balcony, or adorn a evergreen hedge of slender green filaments. Planted in a drained soil, enriched with compost and in a sunny and sheltered place, the white Jasmine requires little care and grows without difficulty. After flowering, simply prune to clean the plant, this will suffice.
