Answer: Yellow Jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens), sometimes called Carolina Jessamine, is one of the most beautiful vines of the South.
These trailing or climbing woody vines are quite common in the Southeast in open woodlands and thickets, and along roadsides; and the blossoms occur in sufficient numbers to make the plant quite showy.
The evergreen leaves are in pairs one to three inches long, entire, and pointed at the tips. Yellow Jessamine begins blooming in February to early March. The fragrant flowers are funnel-shaped with five spreading, rounded lobes. This is an easy to grow plant.
