Staked Star Jasmine Vine

We've had a long love affair with Star Jasmine. This vine is covered with small white, star or pinwheel shaped flowers, that make your garden smell absolutely heavenly.

Whether you know it by its common name Star Jasmine, Chinese Jasmine, Trader's Compass, Chinese Ivy or Confederate Jasmine, the result is the same. I have an involuntary need to take in a deep breath, in hopes of capturing the memory of that sweet smell forever.

Hardy and robust, this flowering beauty appreciates full sun to partial shade and will tolerate high heat as well as temperatures as low as -10 degrees. Adaptable to most soil types, Star Jasmine is moderately drought-tolerant and practically maintenance-free.

Star Jasmine is considered a night-bloomer, with blossoms opening up in the early evening when temperatures cool down. Plant the jasmine in containers where trailing vines can gently spill over the side. Since this vine is very versatile it can be trained to grow up a trellis or similar structure. Star Jasmine are especially nice near your front door, to great your visitors.

Consider planting this vine on an open pergola to create an irresistible, shaded retreat. With Star Jasmine, you can transform your outdoor living space into an exotic vacation destination.
