Trachelospermum asiaticum (Asiatic Jasmine)

Asiatic Jasmine, Dwarf Confederate Jasmine, Japanese Star Jasmine, Trachelospermum asiaticum majus, Trachelospermum majus Nakai


Award-winning Trachelospermum asiaticum (Asiatic Jasmine) is a tough, medium-sized, evergreen shrub or vine adorned with glossy, elliptical to oval, dark green leaves, up to 2 in. long (5 cm), on wiry, twining stems. The evergreen foliage often turns bronze-red in cold weather. In summer, it produces abundant clusters of sweetly fragrant, creamy flowers, 3/4 in. (2 cm), that age to yellow. Slow growing, its dense, low growth makes it a terrific lustrous groundcover. It will also happily climb a fence, trellis, or arbor with support. Good in containers or cascading out of hanging baskets.

Resembling Trachelospermum jasminoides (Star Jasmine), Asiatic Jasmine has smaller leaves in darker green, and smaller flowers in creamy yellow shades. It is more hardy than Star jasmine and more tempered too!

  • Grows up to 6-12 in. tall (15-30 cm), spreading and rooting laterally. Grows up to 15-20 ft. high (450-600 cm) on a structure.
  • Thrives in full sun to part shade in fertile, well-drained soils. Protect from cold winds. Drought-tolerant once well-established.
  • Disease resistant, deer resistant, Asiatic Jasmine is an ideal plant for gardening novices.
  • Propagate by layering or semi-hardwood cuttings. Prune in early spring.
  • Native to Japan and Korea.
