Description

The Star Jasmine Vine (Trachelospermum jasminoides), also know as Confederate Jasmine, is a true gardening classic! This flowering vine is beloved for its gorgeous crisp-white pinwheel blooms in late spring to summer. These flowers are delightfully fragrant with a fantastic jasmine scent, reminiscent of Gardenias.

This is an evergreen flowering jasmine that features shiny, dark-green oval leaves. It's a fast-growing variety, but it needs support for climbing. Simply secure it to your structure in a few places and over time it will take to it beautifully. It's a great choice for arbors or trellises where it's able to create a timelessly stunning display. Create an impenetrable and eye-catching privacy screen of foliage by planting it on a trellis-fence.

Left untrained, it will grow as a groundcover. This is great for large spaces that you don't want to worry about maintaining. Simply plant several of them (enough to cover the space) and let them do their thing. As they grow together they will choke out weeds that might attempt to sprout beneath them.

At maturity, it's capable of reaching 3-6' H by 3-6' W, with numerous vines coming from each plant.

Star Jasmine Care

It's hardy from USDA Zones 7-11. We recommend providing overnight coverage during hard-freezes during its first winter in your landscape.

It grows in Full Sun to Partial Shade. Full Sun results in more flowers, however, it also may take on more foliage stress by the end of summer.

Water your new planting 2-3 times per week for the first growing season. During the second season, provide supplementary water 1-2 times weekly. More water is necessary in times of high heat and drought.

This flowering jasmine cultivar grows best in slightly acidic to neutral soil, between 6.0 and 7.0.

Fertilize in spring with a balanced slow-release fertilizer to promote new growth.

Popular Companion Plants:

  • Create a Jasmine-scented, white-blooming garden. Plant it with the Jubilation Gardenia and Fragrant Tea Olive.
  • Plant it with other climbing vines that bloom at different times to extend your flower season. The Carolina Jessamine is a non-aggressive vine that won't choke out the Confederate Jasmine, or vice-versa.
  • We love planting them with pyramidal evergreens like Juniper Trees. Either in front of them as a mat or behind them on a trellis wall. Their naturally refined growth habit contrasts unbelievably well with this elegant vine. Otherwise, try it with a similarly elegant tree, the Italian Cypress.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

Spacing Your Star Jasmine Vine

If using as a ground cover plant space 3-4 feet apart. If using as a trellis plant space 2-3 feet apart.
