PLANT OF THE MONTH - SEPTEMBER 2020
Trachelosperumum jasminoides - Star Jasmine
Star Jasmine is an attractive flowering shrub or vine with universal appeal, lending itself to tropical, rustic or cottage style gardens. It can be pruned to use as an accent shrub or hedge, and is useful as a groundcover when unsupported and left to roam freely. Twining branches climb to about 10 feet with support and can quickly cover a fence, trellis or arbor with dense, dark green foliage. An abundance of fragrant white star-shaped flowers bloom in spring through summer. Plant near patios or courtyards where the flower fragrance can be enjoyed. It grows well in full sun to part shade and is an easy care, waterwise plant.
