Tom
Here is a link to my home clubs local show in it there is a confederate jasmine cascade from one of our members. The flowers and smell are outstanding.

Thanks for the link, Mitch....nice trees...I enjoyed yours very much. I recently acquired a small triple trunk jasmine that I started work on. It is nice to see one in full flower. Thanks again.

As an FYI...

If this is what you're looking for it's Trachelospermum jasminoides, not Jasminum officinale.

That's interesting. Have you been able to develop any kind of a trunk? How big is it?

Actually, I don't think it is looking too bad...I cut it back hard just recently, so right now it is a bit thread bare...it is a triple-trunk, about 12 inches in height...trunk caliper at the soil line is about 2 inches.

Wow, post a picture when you can. I've never seen this used as bonsai material. What did you start with?

I will do so, Russell...glad to...actually I acquired the tree from our University greenhouse... it recently underwent a lot of remodelling...cuttings were taken from many of the older specimens at that time to make some more room....I was lucky enough to pick up some good stock, and the jasmine was among them.

Russell: Here are a couple of pictures as your requested...I just recently cut the tree back hard so it is not looking the best....
