The ‘casement jessamine’ of Tennyson’s Maud is a delicious plant to grow on a trellis near the house, for its heavy scent will waft about indoors as well as outside. A semi-evergreen twining climber from Persia, it is a plant of great elegance, grown in England since Tudor times, with small pinnateand abundant clusters of little white which are tinged with pink in the bud. It continuously from mid-summer into au-tumn. This jasmine is hardy, but does best in a protected in either sun or light shade, and is ideal for a balcony. It likes a well-drained soil and needs no except a spring clipping of any shoots damaged by winter frost, or a trimming to size if it grows too large.
