Asiatic Jasmine (Asian Star Jasmine) is a classic choice for a dense fast growing ornamental ground cover. The oval shaped foliage is a rich glossy dark green color. In warmer climate jasmine will be evergreen to semi-evergreen, and in colder climates it may lose its and then flush out again in the spring. It grows well under shady trees and can also tolerate sun. Once established Jasmine Asiatic can be quite drought tolerant, but may need some watering in extreme drought conditions.
