yellow Carolina jasmine (or "jessamine")
vine is an attractive evergreen vine that tends

sun. The glossy rich green leaves are narrow oblongs
and evergreen in Zone 8.
of fragrant yellow tubular flowers are produced
from late winter to early spring depending on
location and temperature. The showy blossoms are
about 2 in long and have a flared mouth.
jasmine will rapidly cover arbors, tree trunks,
trellises, etc. in a season or two. This is a
well behaved vine that will stay in scale and
we use it on decks and porches, on trellises and
near patios and entryways on arches or other structures.
It grows well in containers and as ground cover
along steep banks. Carolina jasmine is a good
candidate for low maintenance landscapes.
fast growing evergreen vine is easy to grow and
readily available. Here in mid-Georgia, the sight
of Carolina Jasmines' happy yellow flowers is
one of our first signs of spring.
