What is your plant hardiness zone in Michigan? I think most Jasmine are suitable for zone 7a and higher so if you are in a lower zone it might not survive outdoors over winter.

BeKind, Welcome! to ATP,
Is that a photo of you plant or a photo from the internet?

If you already own the plant -
It may survive if you are in the warmest climate zone in Michigan and if you get creative with the winter protection. My friend decorated some cold sensitive plants with holiday lights, wrapped the plants and mulched the heck out of them; she managed to push the zone. Different plant than yours but I mention it because of the method used. That being said your plant may not actually want to make flowers for you.

If you are considering buying the plant -
Please think carefully as you will be working extra hard to keep this Little Princess happy during the cold months.

A couple of years ago Home Depot was selling Star Jasmine Trachelospermum jasminoides this year and they are saying hardy to zone 6. I purchased it 3 yrs ago because I am a zone 6. I mulched with 6" of pine needles, planted it close to the house and did all kinds of magic tricks. The sucker did not live. Rolling on the floor laughing

This summer they were selling them again for $7.00 and last month they marked them down to $2.00 and said they are annuals. I picked up 4 of them. They have grown up the wall. I am going to cut 2 of them down and bring them inside and leave the other two out and see what happens this year. Again planted them against the house and will mulch heavy.

When I had them a couple of years ago I was able to keep them in the basement all winter and bring them out in the summer. That worked for 3 yrs. Then they died one winter in the basement. Maybe it got to cold or too dry.

I dug my Jasmine last year and brought in house over winter and then replanted outside in spring. It did flower in the house over winter and outside in the summer. Thanks for all of the replies. Helped me make the decision to re-dig and bring in this winter. I love Jasmine Because it is very fragrant.

Yes the fragrance is amazing. I love it too. I think you are making the right decision. Maybe next summer you can lay one of the branches on the ground and try to root it and test if it will survive outside.

Has anyone tried Rex Begonias as houseplant?
