- Product Code:
Trachelospermum jasminoides, Chinese Star Jasmine
Starting from: $16.95
An excellent form of evergreen climber. Highly recommended by onlineplants for use as a rambling climber, espalier or even a groundcover.
If using as a prostrate form, pin the foliage down so it grows roots and continues to spread. Chinese star jasmine is lightly perfumed and dark green foliaged with small white star flowers. It will flower sporadically all year with a main flush in spring and summer.
Can be grown in pots as semi formal espaliers or poles, or use a mass fence covering with trellis work to hold in position. Well drained fertile soil with annual organic feeding will suffice and twice per year pruning will encourage a bushy shape.
Trachelospermum jasminoides, commonly known as Chinese Star Jasmine, is a popular evergreen vine native to China and Japan. It is a member of the Apocynaceae family and is closely related to other vines such as periwinkle and oleander.
Chinese Star Jasmine is a climbing plant that can grow up to 9 meters long. It has glossy, dark green leaves that are leathery and oval-shaped, and fragrant white flowers that bloom in summer. The flowers are star-shaped and have a strong, sweet fragrance similar to that of true jasmine, hence the common name "Star Jasmine". The plant also produces small, black, berry-like fruits that are not typically consumed by humans.
Trachelospermum jasminoides is a hardy plant that can tolerate a wide range of growing conditions. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil, but can also tolerate some drought and salt spray. The plant is relatively low-maintenance and requires little pruning, although it can benefit from some training or trimming to maintain its shape or control its growth.
Chinese Star Jasmine is a versatile plant that can be used in a variety of landscaping settings. It is commonly grown as a ground cover or climbing vine, and can also be trained to grow up trellises, walls, or other support structures. The fragrant flowers make it a popular choice for planting near outdoor living areas, or in other areas where their fragrance can be appreciated.
