What kind of planti is it?

Its a jasmine Katarina, we grow it as a houseplant. Yours looks incredibly healthy Rk. The ones Ive bought in the past have always been trained into a hoop shape. I haven't had much luck keeping them. Do you think its better to unravel them and train them upright?

Hi Poppy, I just that my jasmine in garden has much different leaves and is a large shrub. I know there sre some "jasmine-like" sorts of plants, but I am now not sure which one is that, if mine or Rkwright┬┤s.

There are a few different Jasmine species. Some have white flowers (some with pinkish buds) and some have yellow. If there's other colors, I'm not familiar with them. The one in the picture is Jasminum polyanthum. I have another called Jasminum sambac, very different flower and fragrance but they're all nice.
I cut them back after flowering and train them on a trellis or hoop but it doesn't seem to make a difference which way it grows. They're tricky to unravel without damaging the stems, you'd either want to cut it back or let it be. I haven't found them tough to keep but it's tricky to get them to flower again. They need 4-6 weeks of cold to set buds in fall. Jasminum sambac doesn't need a cold treatment and flowers repeatedly. Wish I could plant it outside but it would never survive here.

Thats the same as the one I have Rk. Youve set me a challenge now. I will have a good go at getting it to flower again. Ill let you know if I succeed! Fingers crossed!

I has been checking this "jasmine-like" plant and I am still not sure if this is jasmine. All my books show me, that this is climbing woody liana called Fallopia aubertii. It is recormand in fast growing and must be cut deeply each year in order to bloom.

Definitely Jasmine Katarina . . . you will recognise it better when it's in flower!

OK. I was just wondering, as my jasmine has different leaves.
Like this one:

Good luck with the Jasmine Poppy! I failed to get mine to bloom this year so ended up getting another. The temperature they need for 4-6 weeks in fall is 40-60F or 4-15 degrees Celsius. Probably best to keep it on the cooler side of that range. Keep it in a cool spot to stay dormant in winter and bring it out in mid-late January. Kind of tricky to get it right but worth the effort.
