The White Jasamine is an exceedingly elegant plant for training over a wall, where that support can be allowed; and, after its first infancy, will bear our winters, with some protection. It is a delicate and fragrant shrub, not surpassed by any of the species. It is of this that Cowper speaks, in the following pas sage:

"The Jasmine, throwing wide her elegant sweets, The deep dark green of whose unvarnished leaf Makes more conspicuous, and illumines more The bright profusion of her scattered stars."
