If you're after a true jasmine, try Spanish Jasmine (Jasminum grandiflorum), a sprawling vine that grows 10-15 feet with glossy green leaves and loose clusters of fragrant white flowers. There is also a Primrose Jasmine (Jasminum mesnyi) that grows long, arching branches (6-10 feet) and bright yellow flowers. Trachelospermum, the Star Jasmine, needs some shade from the hot afternoon sun, but grows twining vines to 20 feet long. White, sweet-scented flowers are profuse in the early summer.
