|You may associate Jasmine with the smell of sweet perfume, but not all of this diverse group of vines, shrubs and ground covers have fragrant flowers. Most are tropical or subtropical, but some, such as Jasminum nudiflorum, grow as far north as southern coastal New England. Prune to control shape and size. Several of the less frost-tolerant, fragrant species are grown in greenhouses which fill with their scent.
The cold-hardiest Jasmine is a mounding, scrambling shrub that can be trained as a vine. Its bright yellow flowers have no fragrance. In winter, force dormant cut branches to bloom by starting them indoors. Controls erosion.
