Award-winning Trachelospermum jasminoides (Star Jasmine) is a vigorous, medium-sized, evergreen shrub or vine adorned with glossy, oval, dark green leaves, up to 3 in. long (8 cm), on wiry, twining stems. Emerge bronze-purple, they often turn bronze-red in cold weather. In late spring and sporadically thereafter, it produces abundant clusters of sweetly fragrant, star-shaped, white flowers, 1 in. (2.5 cm), that become cream with age. Most commonly used as a climbing vine to cover privacy fences, arbors, or create a more natural look for concrete walls.
