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). Still, this makes a very successful arbor, especially if situated in a sunny area. It will also bloom, though less well, in partial shade.        Note: Can serve as a bushy Ground-cover

To keep in check, prune annually in late spring after flowering.                                *Poisonous to humans if eaten*
