Fact Sheet: Confederate Jasmine

Although slow to get started, confederate jasmine is well worth the wait.  Eventually rather vigorous, this twining woody vine has small, shiny, dark green leaves which provide a very dense screen or cover.  The intensely fragrant, pinwheelshaped, pure white, one-inch blossoms, abundantly produced in April and May, extend well beyond the leaves.  Confederate jasmine is ideal for training across the top of a doorway or on a trellis next to a porch where its fragrance can be easily appreciated.  It can also be used to cover light posts, fences, or tree trunks.
