TRACHELOSPERMUM

Ground covers, 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, 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 to 30 ft.; without support and with some tip-pinching, a spreading shrub or ground cover to 2 ft. tall, 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 shrubby plant, it is good in raised beds or entry gardens, for edging walk or drive, as extension of lawn, spilling over walls, or as ground cover under trees and shrubs. Set plants 5 ft. apart for ground cover.
