About Star Jasmine Vine (Large-Leaf)

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.

How To Plant:

  1. Find a suitable planting location for your new vine based on the growing specifications listed above.
  2. Dig a hole that is roughly 3 times as wide as the root ball of your plant.
    • By digging a wider hole, it’s easier for your new plant’s roots to spread. 
    • The hole only needs to be deep enough that your plant sits even with the natural ground around it. Don’t plant it any deeper than this. However, it can be planted in a shallower hole if you are concerned about slow drainage in your planting location. If this is the case, plant it so that it sits roughly 3-4 inches above the native ground and mound soil around the base.
  3. Mix your native soil with some rich gardening soil, composted manure, or soil conditioner.
    • This will enrich the soil and increase your plant’s chances of success.
  4. Backfill the hole with your soil mixture around your plant. Gently pat the soil down with your hands.
    • Now is also a good time to fertilize your plant. For this species, we recommend a slow-release balanced fertilizer. However, avoid using liquid fertilizer on new plantings. 
    • This is also a great time to apply mulch. 3-4 inches of wood mulch around the base of your plant will help it retain more moisture and protect its roots from extreme temperatures (important for hotter USDA Zones, such as 8 and up).
  5. Soak your new planting with a hose to hydrate your plant and settle the soil.
  6. For Climbing: Now secure your vine to whatever structure you want it to climb using some sort of vine clip, twist tie, wire, etc. Once it has grown another foot or two, secure it again to your structure in a few additional spots. Once it has taken to the new structure over time, it will not need any more assistance adhering to the structure.

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.

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.

    They arrived in perfect condition. Taller and more established than I thought I would receive. So really happy

  2. Wanda Costello (verified owner)

    I was so excited to open these and see they were complete with a trellis. Look so healthy. Unfortunately, since they arrived a week ago we have been having excessive heat so I’m waiting for a little cool down next week to get them in the ground. Right now they are enjoying some shade in the yard and lots of water – they seem to be thriving while they wait for their new home.

    Plants were larger than expected and very vibrant looking.

  4. Sara (verified owner)

    The jasmine arrived so promptly and in great condition. It was a gift for a special neighbor so I was really pleased to be able to present him with such a beautiful plant. He was super happy and now we’ll all get to enjoy it as he’s planting it along our shared fence. Thank you to the folks at Plants by Mail!

    I’ve ordered many plants in the past from other companies, but this has been my best experience by far. It came quickly in great shape with many flowers and was very well packaged. After receiving the jasmine I ordered a gardenia and was equally impressed

  6. Carolyn (verified owner)

    My plant arrived quickly, appears to be healthy and I am anxious to plant it out in my yard. Hope to be able to write a wonderful review when it grows and actually bloomsw!

  9. Missy O’Kelly (verified owner)

    Plants were well packaged and arrived healthy. Good sized plants; not “starts”. Fairly priced & convenient ordering experience. Second time ordered. Will order again.

    Plant arrived in great condition! Very healthy and better quality than I have been able to get at my local nursery.

  11. Rene Robichaux (verified owner)

    Plants arrived very quickly, were healthy and in very good condition. They had robust root systems, much better than what I had found locally.

  12. usfbull4ever

    I ordered 10 plants. They arrived in great condition. I didn’t get a shipping or tracking notification. It arrived fast and on a Sunday afternoon. I unpacked and planted them the next day. One died but others are doing very well. I’m looking forward to it becoming a lovely ground cover one day. I know it’ll take a while. I’ll likely order more for the other side of my yard

    Gorgeous! Placed my order for a 3 gallon Confederate Jasmine on May 14th and it arrived today (the 19th.) That’s super speedy in my book! The vine arrived carefully packaged, very healthy, in bloom, and trained onto a wooden trellis. I broke into the box like 8 year-old me on Christmas Day and immediately planted the vine to continue up my trellis near my front door. Already smells divine on my porch this warm Delta evening! Could not be happier.

  14. Dan Olsen (verified owner)

    Arrived in perfect shape and already had lots of blooms. Packing is perfect.

  15. Alexandra Ameduri (verified owner)

    Arrived today blooming. Gorgeous. Really appreciated how this site made it easy to search planes by zone and clearly explained how to plant them. I really want to garden but know little. Hopeful I don’t kill it!

  16. Shelby (verified owner)

    I received a beautiful healthy plant that was carefully and securely packed. I am very happy with my purchase and will always feel confident to order from Plants by Mail. Thank you, Shelby

  17. Eve

    They came in with a bunch of flowers and buds in great condition! Now still thriving!

  18. Gail Kenney (verified owner)

    I was thrilled with my Jasmine order,. A very healthy large plant.

  19. rtorre02 (verified owner)

    My two Jasmine vines arrived healthy in well packaged containers. I’m going to train these up a trellis onto my pergola. Two thumbs up!
