Winter jasmine, or Jasminum nudiflorum, can be found labeled as a vine or as a deciduous shrub; it's really kind of a rambling, sprawling sort of plant. It is in its element spilling down a bank or over a wall. It is often used as a ground cover for a slope - it tolerates poor soil as long as it's well drained and roots wherever the stems touch the ground.

Its best attributes are the beautiful yellow blooms that brighten up a dreary winter's day.
