Asiatic Jasmine, also known as Yellow Star Jasmine, is a woody, evergreen vine that is primarily used as ground-cover, although we've known it to be successfully espaliered (see photo). It is not related to the shrub and climbing jasmines.
Fragrant, pale yellow flowers appear in May and June. It is a good alternative to grass, especially under plantings that will provide some shade.
Drought tolerant. To keep under control, prune by mowing in late winter/early spring. IT MAY BE A LITTLE SENSITIVE TO THE HARSH, LATE AFTERNOON SUN.
