One of the most versatile landscape plants
When you say Jasmine most people think of a fragrant rambling climber. Star Jasmine is much more than a climber, it’s one of the most versatile landscape plants. It has a dark green sasanqua camellia-like leaf and a dense growing habit without large tendrils like other forms of climbing Jasmine. It grows happily in the sun or shade in a wide variety of soils and although it’s a little bit slow growing it never becomes invasive. Apart from providing a year-round dense evergreen foliage cover in early summer Star Jasmine is covered in thousands of tiny starry white flowers that are extremely fragrant, the flowering lasts for several months. Few fragrances are more exotic than the fragrance of Star Jasmine, its perfume fills a garden on a still hot summers night.
Star Jasmine: A Popular Groundcover
Star Jasmine can be used as a ground cover, it thrives in full sun or shade and does well under trees. In Southern California Star Jasmine is a popular groundcover and some gardens consist entirely of trees and shrubs underplanted with a vast lawn of Star Jasmine. Star Jasmine can be used to create a thick groundcover on fences and walls, it is great because it doesn’t become too rampant and it tends to keep a vegetative cover right to the ground where a lot of climbers only provide cover at the top of the fence.
Star Jasmine is wonderful to grow over a frame in a pot and clip into a formal topiary style shape. So as not to lose all the fragrant summer flowers be sure to clip immediately after flowering as the flowers form on the new growth.
