Yellow Jasmine

Yellow Jasmine

While ‘somewhat common’ in Victorian gardens, the Yellow Jasmine (Jasminum revolutum) was a reasonably new import, having flowered for the first time in Britain in the garden of the Right Hon. Charles Long, at Bromley, in Kent, in 1814. Yellow Jasmine is a native of North India, but is closely related to the European jasmines.
