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.
We carefully mature our plants into their pots and ship them only when they’re ready to go. All of our plants are shipped with soil in the pots that they were grown in. We never ship anything bare-root. We don’t guarantee that they will be in bloom on arrival, however, we guarantee that you will receive a healthy specimen that is ready to perform to your expectations in your landscape over its lifetime. If you aren’t happy with your order, give us a call at 1-866-618-5659 or send us an email at [email protected]ail.com. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can, and we’ll do whatever we can to make it right.

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

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.

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

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

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!

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!
