Gigi,

Asian jasmine does not bloom. It grows to about 6 to 10 inches high depending on how long it has been in and whether or not you mow it back in late winter. It is a bit slow to establish but if you water and fertilize it well it can fill in fairly well in a couple of growing seasons.

If you prefer to have blooms you might want to consider Periwinkle (Vinca minor) or Asian Star Jasmine (Trachelospermum asiaticum).

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
