The Q&A Archives: Star Jasmine

Question: What does a star jasmine look like?

Answer: Trachelospermum is the botanical name for Star Jasmine. It's an evergreen vine or sprawling shrub that grows to 20' tall, with sweet-scented white flowers growing in profuse clusters on the side stems. The flowers have five petals (which makes them look like stars) and the leaves are glossy dark green. It can be used as a groundcover, or supported on a trellis. Star Jasmine grows in full sun to part shade in moist, rich soil.
