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