Confederate (Star) Jasmine
It seems that as summer looms right around the corner, many people come in looking for the Confederate (Star) Jasmine vine. It has a very fragrant star-shaped flower which is the reason it is so popular over other flowering vines. It is also more hardy than other vines and can survive the winter in Houston. Confederate Jasmine is not native to Texas but does very well here.This vine can be anywhere from 15-40 ft in length. It takes full sun to partial sun. One plus it that it is drought tolerant so don’t overwater but do give average water. Plant with like plants for watering requirements. It can be propagated from semi-hardwood cuttings. Some websites claim it is poisonous but apparently the Univ of Calif. found it was not, still use caution as it can cause skin irritation for some people.
So if you are thinking of putting in a vine, this may be the one for you!
