Confederate Jasmine, Star Jasmine
Fragrant blooms are what make this evergreen woody vine stand out in a crowd. Though commonly grown in the American South, star jasmine, or Confederate jasmine, actually originates from China, Korea and Japan. Its glossy, oval leaves are dark green and change to a pretty bronze-red in winter. Throughout the growing season it bears many, star-shaped, creamy white flowers that have a strong, sweet fragrance, which compel one to linger nearby.
Star jasmine prefers full to partial sun and organic rich soil with average drainage. It is easily trained on a trellis and takes well to pinching and sculpting as topiary. In northern climates it can be grown in containers and overwintered in a cool greenhouse.
