New Asian Jasmine ‘Snow-N-Summer’

Sep 8, 2010

Ok, never did I think I'd be picking an ASIAN JASMINE as a favorite new plant of mine, but there is just something about 'Snow-N-Summer' that has me hooked! If you haven't seen this new beauty, it's basically just like your standard groundcover Asian Jasmine, except the new growth emerges pink, then fades to white before turning green. It's such a lovely color effect. It looks fabulous in containers too...

I saw this earlier this spring and bought my mom one.  It still looks wonderful.  I was worried that the variegation would fade or revert back to green, but so far, so good!  I think it’s really pretty and brightens up a shady spot!

Dear Leslie,

I purchased this plant this weekend and planted it in our front garden bed. I have tried searching care instructions for this particular plant but have been unsuccessful. Can you please share what knowledge you have on caring for this plant? Specifically how to protect the young saplings through a Piedmont North Carolina upcoming Fall/Winter?

Sincerely,
Ashley

Hi Ashley, this variety of Asian jasmine is cold hardy to zone 7a, or 0-10F. I’m not exactly sure how low your winter temps get, but just go ahead and mulch the plants well before you start to head into winter. They will look their best planted in a sunny spot or partial sun with dappled shade. The heavier the shade the less pink color you’ll get. Once established plants will be fairly drought hardy, but any new planting will require supplemental watering to get established. Otherwise, plants should be pretty low maintenance. Hope this helps!

Looks like mine has reverted.  All leaves are green and bronze.  No white or pink anywhere on the plant.  :(
