'Confederate Jasmine' - Trachelospermum jasminoides Available in 3 Gallon
This beautiful and energetic evergreen vine creates a special scene all through the year as clambers 40 ft (12 m) up tree trunks using its holdfast roots to pull itself almost to the top. During April and May the plant goes two-tone as it flushes light green with new growth. Shortly thereafter the scene transforms again when the delicate 1 in (2.5 cm) white pinwheel flowers delicately breathe enchanting fragrances into the spring air.
Confederate jasmine grows as a neat tangle of slender wiry stems that exude white latex when cut. These are covered with thick glossy evergreen leaves that are 2 in (5 cm) long, oval shaped, and pointed at both ends. The stems will twine and clamber over supports and cling to walls and hard surfaces with great ease and abandon. Culture Not particular as to soil but prefers well drained situations with some organic matter. Light Bright sun to part shade. Moisture Average water. Can tolerate drought once established. Hardiness USDA Zones 8 - 10. Look for cultivars that are hardy to Zone 7. Propagation Use rooting hormone powder on cuttings. These root easily when taken in the spring
