Carolina jasmine is a tidy plant that blooms in the winter and the spring. It provides color during the cold months. Yellow blossoms with a light scent will begin to appear in January and last through spring.
This is a vine thatgrows fast, but won’t take over like some other vines. You can even grow it in a container as long as you provide support with a trellis.
The foliage of green leaves will stay fairly full and bushy. You can plant groundcovers or low-growing perennials fairly close to the base of these plants. Carolina jasmine can cause skin irritations in some people, so wear gloves when pruning. They are the State Flower of South Carolina, hence the common name.
Carolina Jasmine Specs & Spacing
This vine is a fast grower that prefers full to part sun but it will also grow in partial shade. They are a cold hardy plant, so you can grow them anywhere in Florida. If you are planting them along a fence, give them about 3 feet of space. If you grow a low growing plant or groundcover beneath the vine, come out at least 2 feet for planting.
Carolina Jasmine Care
You will want to add top soil mixed with composted cow manure when you plant. They can be trimmed anytime for shaping. This vine doesn’t require hard pruning, but it can be cut back hard in late spring after the flowering season is over. It prefers water on a regular basis. Fertilize once or twice a year with a granular fertilizer.
