    I bought a jasmine plant (I think) at the Seattle rock garden society sale last year. Since then I've lost the tag. Can anyone help me identify it? It's more erect than the usual jasmine. The longest stem is over two feet so far. It had yellow flowers in the spring, and it's done well even though I've neglected it.

    Thank you.

    Looks like Jasminum nudiflorum or Jasminum mesnyi. These are fairly common in the trade, but if you got your plant at the Seattle rock garden society sale, you might have picked up something more exotic. J. nudiflorum is deciduous, zone 6-9 blooms late winter on bare branches, no fragrance. J. mesnyi, is similar in form, evergreen, zone 8-9, blooms in spring and has good fragrance.

    We have a similar species here in India, which is Jasminum humile (Yellow flowering)
