Plant Care Instructions By Steve Brigham

Star Jasmine is one of the most versatile of all small evergreen vines. Its glossy leaves, tidy habit, and fragrant flowers make it a good choice for a variety of garden situations, either as a climber (it\'s a good plant for growing on a trellis) or as a ground cover. This is a tough, easy to grow, low-maintenance plant that is useful even in difficult situations.
