This vine has been in my garden for maybe a decade now. I would classify it more as a shrub than a vine. It responds well to trimming. The first fragrant flowers appear in late winter, blooms heavily in spring, then sporadically through fall. Flowers are larger than the Confederate Jasmine. Great for making tea. This plant is drought tolerant, frost tolerant, and not aggressive like the Confederate can be. Loves a sunny spot.
