I saw below arbust in Geneva. It was planted into a hail behind a metallic fence. It has started blossoming lately in the beginning of June.

I wander what it is. Does anyone know?

It has great perfume and I'm considering planting one at my place. But I live 250 meters (820 feet) above Geneva, and temperatures can be -20 deg.C (-4 deg. F) for a night or two. Could it be a possibility for my garden?

It's Trachelospermum jasminoides, an evergreen twining climber. Unfortunately, its only hardy down to -10 degC as a minimum temperature, so if your winter temperatures regularly fall lower than this, its not a good choice.
