Hi guys,

Any help identifying this climber would be appreciated. It's evergreen, and the main stem is quite woody; the flowers are not noticeably fragrant.

The leaves are unusual and quite variable from what I can see. Can you confirm whether the one flower I can see with four petals is typical or do other flowers have more petals? It's somewhat like Jasminum x stephanense but the number of petals would be wrong if all are four. Here's a picture just in case:

Agree.
Jasminum x stephanense.
Link below appears to have 4 petals. Leaf fits.

I agree, it does look like lovely Jasmine (Jasminum x stephanense)

The leaves are a gold colour. Might be Jasminum officinale 'Fiona Sunrise'.

You've nailed it, thank you! Most of the flowers have 5 petals, but I neglected to notice that a few had 4.

Looking at other pictures it's definitely stephanense.

The golden flush seems to turn darker after the new growth.

Looks like Poet's Jasmine (Jasminum officinale Fiona Sunrise) has white flowers.
