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. Light fragrance. Can tolerate temperatures as low as -25F.
Can serve as a bushy ground-cover.
To keep in check, prune annually in late spring after flowering.
