Carolina Jasmine

Regular price $15.00 Sale

Gelsemium sempervirens

Carolina Jasmine is a beautiful, yellow-blooming, evergreen vine native to the American southeast. It is not, however, jasmine, or jessamine, as most gardeners know it (which is a fragrant white-blooming shrub or vine).

Makes a very successful arbor, especially if situated in a sunny area. It will also bloom, though less well, in partial shade.

Bonus + Can also serve as a bushy ground-cover.  

To keep in check, prune annually in late spring after flowering. 

Important Note: Poisonous to humans if eaten
