Winter jasmine (Jasminum nudiflorum) is a deciduous shrub. Unlike trees that have specific branch patterns, winter jasmine produce shoots that emerge in all directions.
They are appreciated for their yellow flowers – flowers that open at the end of winter before the new leaves emerge (hence the name “nudiflorum”).
The specimen above was in need of cutback so I reduced the longest shoots and thinned branches that grew at awkward angles.
After cutback – 8.5″
I’ll repot the tree this winter and let it gain vigor for 6-12 months before doing additional work. Once the tree is growing well, I’ll cut back further to encourage the tree to produce new shoots in the tree’s interior.
