Trachelospermum jasminoides


Categories: ,


You could be forgiven for thinking that this plant is a jasmine; in fact, it’s common name is the star jasmine. It’s flowers are white and very fragrant, coming in mid to late summer. The leaves are evergreen and turn wonderful shades of red and orange in winter. It needs a bit of protection from cold winds in the winter, but it’s a surprisingly hardy plant.
