The Q&A Archives: Pink Jasmine Frost Tender?

Question: The planting guide that came with my pink Jasmine says it will not tolerate frost. Does this mean that I have to bring it in for the winter or only that it'll die off in the winter, and grow again when the weather gets warm in the Spring?

Answer: Pink jasmine is frost tender and any part of the plant nipped by frost will die back. As long as the ground doesn't freeze, your pink jasmine will be happy in your garden. If the tops are nipped by frost, just prune them back and new growth will be produced. If the ground regularly freeze in the winter, keep your plants in containers and take them indoors over the winter months.
