Answer: Carolina jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens) is a very reliable twisting and vining plant. It will scramble or climb for 10 to 20 feet so it needs some room and a sturdy support. You can transplant it during spring. Cut it back by at least half when you transplant it and be sure it receives adequate water during the following summer.
This vine blooms in early spring on old wood, so it should be pruned immediately after blooming to avoid cutting off next spring's flower buds. It also blooms best in full sun, although it will flower somewhat in shade.
