Trachelospermum (trak-el-oh-sperm-um) Apocynaceae Family. Evergreen woody vines from Asia, with opposite leaves, fragrant, star-like flowers in loose clusters. Trachelospermum asiaticum (ay-zee-at-ik-um) Yellow star jasmine, a climber to 15 feet, with shiny bronze-green leaves, in 2 inch long and yellowish-white fragrant flowers.
Easy-to-grow in any well-drained soil, even in salty locations, but grow best in fertile, loamy soil.
Good low maintenance lawn alternative as it tolerates some foot traffic. Excellent for slopes or low-maintenance cover, especially in areas requiring erosion control. Mow at highest setting in late winter / early spring for fresh foliage.
