Exactly how large do these vines grow. I planted on near the bannister of the steps leading to the North deck and I'd hate for it to become a jungle. Confused
Thanks, Lee

I think w/the right temps they can put on some size. I'm trying to remember if that's what I have growing up my dwarf magnolia Blinking

Kevin, which kind or variety of Jasmine did you plant?

Some top out around 4', others will grow to 8'. And, of course, size can be a bit different if grown in a container vs in the ground, too.

Mine I have to bring in as it gets too cold for them here during winter. So mine don't get very big.

When I saw She and Chantell and Lee on the same forum talking about Jasmine, I just had to pop in and say hello. I have been out of sorts for a few weeks but I am back part time and hope to get back into the swing of things very soon.

I have a greenhouse full of little cuttings of Maid of Orleans and that is primarily the only Jasmine I propagate for sale, but I can tell you, the Maid gets very big if not cut back at least once a year. My two year old plants are about 18 inches tall and getting bushy. I was hoping I would not have to cut them this Fall because I do not need any additional cuttings and I never throw any of them away. I seem to have a green thumb with this baby and I have a great percentage of success with all types of cuttings from the Maid.

Lee depending on what kind you have planted almost all the Sambac Varieties will be viney or leggy if not clipped, but I would think the aroma they will provide around the deck would be worth the time it takes to cut it back.

Just my old opinion. Have a great day.

JB, does Maid of Orleans bloom a long time or just in the spring?
I've never grown it before. And I assume it is a "Sambac" variety?

Thanks..

It starts to bloom early in April and continues on until Fall. That is in the greenhouse of course.
I have some of the cuttings, three inches tall with no leaves and a bloom on them. Looks so funny. It is probably the most popular Sambac.
I sell a lot of mine to people from the Middle East. The New York population is always looking for them. I have a list to tell when I have plants ready. I also supply the Farmers Market with theirs and they keep them for a few months before they put them out to sell. I put a picture of my oldest stock plant in the new plant files. In fact I just destroyed her this year when she was done blooming. She had to be 7 years old and I could no longer keep her pretty. This past winter she got very cold and never seemed to recover, yet she bloomed and produced for me.
She is one of the four Sambac they use for Jasmine Tea. Maid, Belle of India, Mysore Muilli, and Arabian Knight are the ones I know of used for tea.

Isn't the hardy Carolina Jasmine hardy to zone 6? Where did I see that. hmmmmmmmmmmmmm let me look.

No Carolinna Jasmine only hardy to one 7. According to my book Jasmine nudiflorum is hardy in zone 6. It has yellow early spring blooms before the leaves appear and is a deciduous shrub. AKA: Winter Jasmie and AKA: Hardy Jasmine. Forgot to write down the height and width. Too early; not enough coffee in me yet.

I did order Gelsemuim sempervirens from High Country Gardens. "Marguerita' supposedly ;hardy Zones 5 to 9 and it is also called a Carolina Jasmine. its a vining plant with yellow spring flowers. . I knew I saw it some where, I knew I ordered a couple just couldn't find it right off hand. Needed more coffee I guess.

Hope these help in you searches.

Living in the Gulf Coast area in Texas, I purchased at a flea market a "night blooming jasmine". I had to move it this spring because it was so tall, cascading and full. It is easily propagated. The blooms are small, but the fragrance is strong and fantastic surrounding the area and more. It did freeze back last year but spouted new growth after pruning. I don't know the official name of this Jasmine, only what the lady called it and she also had a photo of a humming bird feeding on it in the late evening.

Night Blooming Jasmine = Cestrum nocturnum. I got mine from Logees 5 years ago. Brought it in every winter, This winter it died. Sad Sad The fragrance is wonderful.
