or Part Shade
grow naturally or prune to maintain size and
fast growing evergreen vine produces masses of
highly fragrant, white pinwheel flowers from mid-Spring
to mid-Summer. It derives it name from the jasmine-like
perfume produced. The vines are covered with thick,
glossy, oval-shaped leaves. The stems will twine
and clamber over supports and cling to walls and
hard surfaces with great ease.
Jasmine is easy to grow, not particular as to
soil but prefers well drained situations. We usually
plant this vine in as much sun as possible, however
it will tolerate a fair amount of shade. It is
pest-free, easy to maintain and drought resistant.
We use Confederate Jasmine to cover fences and
pergolas or to clamber up tree trunks. Use to
soften concrete and brick walls and absorb heat
in urban landscapes. Works well in containers
is probably the south's favorite flowering vine.
