It is ideal for covering chain link fences and converting them into attractive "hedges" that will provide privacy and screen unattractive views.

In Spring the white flowers perfume the air with a scent that reminds me of vanilla. trachelospermum jasminoides, confederate jasmine, star jasmine, white flowers, fragrant, apocynaceae

It is very easy to grow.

You can plant it in full sun to partial shade. Once established, it is drought tolerant.

If you have a fenceline to cover, plants may be spaced 3 to 5 feet apart. To encourage dense growth, prune back the branch tips. The best time to prune is right after the vines are finished flowering.

Some people use it as a rambling groundcover. It can also climb very high up into the treetops!

Confederate jasmine plants should be easy to find for sale at local nurseries. You can propagate the vines by rooting cuttings.
