Jasminum Mesnyi is one of the true Yellow Jasmine. One of the local nurseries has a Jasminum Mesnyi that has been grown into more of a tree with roots grown around a large rock, of all the Jasmine varieties I’ve seen this one has the best Bonsai uses. While most websites report Jasminum Mesnyi as being fragrant, I do not smell even the slightest hint of fragrance…maybe I hit it at the wrong time, after a rain perhaps. New growth is soft but becomes woody after a season. Jasminum Mesnyi with its strong woody base and lack of fragrance is clearly more of an ornamental plant.
