Among the most popular shrubs or vines available at Boething Treeland Farms, this trailing evergreen delights with reliable glossy foliage and a sweet flower fragrance that heralds the coming of spring. Very versatile, it can amble up a vertical support or simply spreading along the ground, making it a superb choice for raised beds, borders, under trees, up fences on trellises. Successful in Western Garden zones 8-24, H1 H2 and USDA zones 8-10, this Chinese member of the milkweed family bursts to life in the early spring with glossy green 3” long oval leaves that mature to an attractive dark green. Small star-shaped white flowers emerge on branchlets in spring, emitting an intoxicating scent that inspires lingering, particularly when positioned on patios or near walkways. Mature Star Jasmine specimens will reach 20-30 feet tall when tied to a trellis or other vertical support or 2 feet tall and 10 feet wide if left alone. It will not fail to please given sun, (shade in warmest climates), consistent water, and well-drained soil though clients throughout the country comment on Trachelospermum jasminoides’ adaptive powers, reporting success despite drought, considerable shade, and frost. To reach its maximum beauty potential, fertilize in late winter and after the blooms are spent. Should you wish to check its enthusiastic growth habits, pruning is best done after the bloom. Fortuitously, it is distasteful to deer but adored by butterflies. Why the Royal Horticultural Society has even given it its illustrious Award of Merit. If Star Jasmine pleases British royalty, perhaps it will suit your most demanding clients as well.
