Star Jasmine shines in any landscape, especially planted near a patio, window or entry where the very fragrant, star-shaped white flowers can be enjoyed! From China, Trachelospermum jasminoides (botanical name) has a variety of uses in the landscape including as an espaliered vine, on a trellis or other support, or as an evergreen ground cover where it blends in perfectly under tall trees! These are great no matter how you choose to use them, so plant them any way you want and delight your senses with this fragrant, showy plant!

The Star Jasmine growth rate is fast, so if you are looking for a quick and easy way to add a ground cover or vine, these are an excellent choice. They prefer partial to full sun exposure and can tolerate dry spells. Once established, they have low to moderate watering needs and look great in a beautiful pot with smaller plants too. We like to plant them with Lantana, Plumbago and Rose bushes, all of which are available at Big Tex Tree Nurseries. For additional guidance on what to do with your landscape and property for curb appeal and value, we recommend taking advantage of our free home or business landscape design consultations available at our nursery.

We love Star Jasmine, so if you are looking to cover privacy fences, arbors or want a more natural look for concrete walls, you will not need to have a green thumb for them to thrive! Big Tex Trees has the best-quality trees, shrubs, and other plants. After all, we are the growers, and we can assure their quality is the best you will find anywhere.
