Evergreen, Ground covers, Vines
Groundcovers, trailers, or climbers bearing delightfully fragrant, pinwheel-shaped blossoms in spring or early summer. Among the most versatile and useful of plants. Prefer well-drained soil. For lush plants, fertilize once before spring growth begins and again after flowering. Prune back as needed to shape. Cut stems exude a milky sap. Formerly sold as Rhynchospermum.Trachelospermum jasminoides
Native to China. Given support, a twining vine that can reach 20–30 ft.; without support and with some tip-pinching, a spreading shrub or groundcover to 2 ft. tall and 10 ft. wide. Oval leaves to 3 in. long are glossy light green when new, mature to lustrous dark green. A profusion of white, inch-wide flowers in small clusters appear on short side branches. Attractive to bees. If grown as a shrubby plant, it is good in raised beds or entry gardens, for edging a walk or drive, as extension of a lawn, spilling over walls, or as a groundcover under trees and shrubs. Set plants 5 ft. apart for groundcover.
