TRACHELOSPERMUM

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 asiaticum

From Japan and Korea. Like T. jasminoides but has smaller leaves in darker, duller green and smaller flowers in creamy yellow or yellowish white. Dense, low growth habit makes it an excellent groundcover. ‘Red Top’ has red new growth. ‘Pink Snow’ has pink new growth maturing to green marked with white.
