The Q&A Archives: Where To Plant My Trachelos..jasminodes

Question: What do I need to know to successfully grow my Trachelos jasminodes?

Answer: Trachelospermum jasminoides, or star jasmine, is a twining vine, growing to 20'. It's slow to establish, but once it does, it has a moderate to fast growth rate. You can provide support and it will climb, or you can prune it into a shrub shape, or just allow it to sprawl on the ground where it will develop into a lovely groundcover.

Star jasmine grows in full sun to part afternoon shade and thrives in rich, moist soil. Pinch the plant back when it's young and it will develop lots of new shoots. Expect your plants to bloom in June and July.
