Most high-grade mock oranges (jasmine garden), common in the decorative floriculture different countries were received in France by the famous "Lemoine". Crossed chubushnik coronal and chubushnik small-leaved, Lemoine received the so-called chubushnik Lemoine. On the basis of this hybrid was derived a wide variety of successful varieties of garden jasmine: Alabaster, ermine mantle, Glacier, Avalanche, Mont Blanc, Charm, Maiden (Virdzhinal), et al.
However, in central Russia lemuanovskie and other cold-resistant varieties of mock oranges enough: some freeze slightly during severe winters with little snow (White Bouquet, Glamour, Belle Etoile), others are afraid of late spring frosts.
Soviet scientist, breeder-dendrologist, Professor Nikolai Kuzmich Vekhov (1887-1956), who led for 30 years Lipetsk experimental breeding station, put years of hard work to eliminate domestic varieties of flowering shrubs.
Collection of high-quality jasmine we collected over 10 years. Install grade mock oranges helped us very rare printed monograph NK Vekhova "Jasmine", where he describes in detail the grades and grade Lemoine. After all, it is only at first glance amateur chubushnik all look the same:
In our view, by NK Vekhov chubushnik are pearls of varieties bred garden jasmine. Sort Chamomile is a stunted bush, completely strewn nemahrovye tsvetochkami- "daisies" with long petals.
Naturalists - a variety that is marked by enormous (5.5 cm in diameter) stellate flowers with a strong strawberry smell. Sort Ballet moths - (yes, "ballet", instead of "flight" as somehow written in many articles) has a very interesting semi-double greenish flowers, shaped like a moth. Arctic - a very rare variety with small pure white flowers, with asterisks.
It is interesting to observe the various manifestations of terry mock oranges have flowers of different varieties. In the variety Zoe Kosmodemyanskaya inside the flower concluded several elongated petals. In greenish-cream flower varieties Moonlight lower petals oval, horizontal, beautifully curved, and internal - wide and narrow, fringed. Varieties and mock oranges Elbrus Komsomolets several structurally similar flowers, but the flower Elbrus smaller and has a cream color.
Very interesting garden jasmine varieties Snowballs and Academician Komarov. From a flowering bush varieties chubushnika Snowballs impossible to take your eyes. Despite the fact that the flowers in this class nemahrovye, floriferous shrub looks amazing. A variety chubushnika Academician Komarov attracts huge attention simple flowers, the unusual structure of the bush. Our plants of the class flower size reached 6.7 cm (but still not 10 cm, as can be seen in some descriptions).
Chubushnik grade Pearls, in our opinion, is a jewel of sorts Wehowski jasmines. It is a small shrub with reddish stems curved, bright green leaves and huge (7.5 cm in diameter!) Hanging flowers like precious beads. Less emotionally describe this sort can not.
Sort chubushnika Blizzard has a similar structure of the flowers, but they are smaller in size than the Pearl, and these flowers are collected in a dense inflorescence. Original grade jasmine Airborne with a strong strawberry smell - if it flowers down from the branches in the form parachutes. Bush of this variety is not falling apart, has strictly pyramidal shape and is perfect for creating hedges.
Very often we hear: "I bought in the market (or at the show, or in the famous pavilion) blue or pink chubushnik. Behold, forward colors." Do not wait. Bicolor varieties chubushnika - lemuanovskie varieties (Belle Etoile, Bi Color) with purple spots at the base of the petals - in the middle lane unreliable.
NK milestones were created more frost-streaked varieties of garden jasmine - Unusual Sunrise and with a strong smell of strawberries. Unusual varieties have beautiful reddish, curved stems and small leaves; it is very elegant and extraordinary chubushnik.
Also from the hybrid fund NK Vekhova been assigned two seedlings, which are called Sergei Yesenin and memory of the landmark. Sort Yesenin, seems to have been lost, but the sort of memory of the landmark preserved. Its low shrub with reddish stems and dark green leaves covered with large (5.5 cm) terry, intensely creamy, almost yellow flowers. Sort this very rare and unusual color of flowers.
All varieties of mock oranges have different flowering periods.
Not to mention the two non-flowering varieties of dwarf jasmine garden dwarf and dwarf, which NK Vekhov in his book wrote: "Jasmine dwarf is particularly good as a dark green buttons on the corners of the lawn that secure it to the ground. Obtained from it is also very low curbs, almost do not require shearing."
