Genus Description Trachelospermum is a genus of about 20 species of woody, evergreen, twining climbers found in woodland from India to Japan. They are grown for their attractive foliage and fragrant flowers. Opposite, lance-shaped to broadly ovate leaves are borne on stems that contain a milky latex. Small, salverform flowers, with cylindrical tubes and 5 spreading, slightly twisted lobes, are produced in terminal or axillary cymes, followed by pendent, pod-like fruits (seldom borne in areas with cool summers). Where marginally hardy, grow against a warm, sunny wall; where not hardy, grow in a cool greenhouse or as houseplants. Trachelospermum jasminoides (confederate jasmine or star jasmine) is a woody, ever­green, twining climber with oval, glossy, dark green leaves, to 4in long, turning bronze-red in winter. In summer, fragrant, pure white flowers, 1in across, are produced in terminal and axillary cymes.
Care Tips
Cultivation Outdoors, grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade; provide shelter from cold, drying winds. Under glass, grow in soil- based potting mix in full light with shade from hot sun. During the growing season, water freely and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly. Water sparingly in winter.
Pests and Diseases Mushroom root rot and leaf spot sometimes occur.
