Winter Jasmine

laurieIMG_6931Jasmine, often mistaken for forsythia, blooms after a few warm sunny days in winter. Jasmine has green stems, the flower buds are pink to coral, and bright yellow blooms fade to white.

Jasmine makes a good ground cover for steep hills and looks pretty cascading over a wall. After it blooms, small dark green foliage replaces the flowers. Here at the Cemetery, you can find it growing on the hillside beside the Cemetery Center, along a fence with a cross carved from stone that marks one of the Potter’s Fields.
