General Information

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.
