Yellow Constellation

Even on the dark days of February, the winter jasmine, jasminum nudiflorum, lights up the deck. It's planted at the base of one of the deck support columns, about 8' below this level.  Over the years we've trained it on the trellises under the deck.  It's quietly putting on quite a show now.

This jasmine is quite possibly the best $2 I ever spent.


  1. Really pretty. Now... does it come in pink? just kidding!

  2. I really dislike bright yellow most of the year, but in the dark of winter or early spring, I love it.
