Answer: I think you are referring to Trachelospermum jasminoides. It climbs with support to about 20 feet. Without support, and by pinching back, it can be a spreading shrub or groundcover at about 2 feet tall by 5 feet wide. It takes full sun, but will do better with afternoon shade in hot areas. It needs regular watering. It does best if planted in improved soil with plenty of compost. It's a slow to moderate grower, and can be damaged by cold temperatures of 20 degrees F or below. It also requires some maintenance or it can get a bit straggly over time. But the fragrance of it's flowers makes up for that!
I have seen the plant available at full-service nurseries. Or you can purchase it mail order from Forest Farm, 541-846-7269, web site http://www.forestfarm.com
