Confederate Jasmine

Trachelospermum jasminoides

Confederate Jasmine Plant Features

Confederate jasmine (also called star jasmine) is a beautiful flowering vine that offers sweetly fragrant white flowers in late spring and summer. Its shiny, dark green leaves are a wonderful accent to the blooms and provide good garden interest, even when confederate jasmine is out of bloom. If you have areas where there's nothing to climb, confederate jasmine can also be grown as a lovely weed-smothering groundcover. In cold-winter areas, this plant is often grown as an annual; it can be brought indoors for the winter and kept in a warm, sunny window.

Because confederate jasmine is fast growing, it's an excellent choice for creating privacy, covering a fence, or adding a beautiful backdrop to the garden.

Confederate Jasmine Growing Instructions

Confederate jasmine grows in sun or shade. It puts on more growth, and produces more flowers in the sun, however.

Water confederate jasmine regularly to keep it happy. Once established, it's quite drought resistant and is remarkably easy to maintain.

Fertilize confederate jasmine once or twice a year in spring or summer. Use a regular garden fertilizer; you don't need anything special for this easy plant. 

Prune confederate jasmine anytime it grows out of bounds. 

Confederate jasmine is not recommended for human or animal consumption. Rather, enjoy the scent of its fragrant flowers and look of the shiny green leaves.
