Answer: Trachelosperum jasminoides, also called Confederate Jasmine or Star Jasmine, is hardy in zones 7 and 8. You can dig your plant up now and place it in a container (with drainage holes in the bottom). Give it bright shade (no hot afternoon sunshine) and keep it well watered. You can cut the tops down by about a third without shocking the plant too much. When you dig, try to get as much of the root system as possible. It should make the move to North Carolina providing you keep it comfortable throughout the trip. When you get to your destination, place it in a shady spot until you're ready to plant it. I'd plant it in the fall, winter, or spring (not in the heat of summer). You can once again give it morning sunshine in its new home in the ground. It won't look its best in afternoon sun, so find a partially shady spot for it.
Best wishes with your move.
