Comment:

Asian star jasmine is a, quick-growing bird-friendly groundcover that has beautiful fragrant flowers and year-round interest. Asian star jasmine can be damaged by cold in severe winters but it is more hardy than Confederate jasmine.   It may be used in the front of the border, to fill difficult sized planters or as coverage on banks and slopes. It looks exceptional twining up chain link fence, trellis, or arbor in back of some colorful lantana (Lantana camara).  It works great cascading out of hanging baskets or use as a groundcover with tall shrubs such as rose mallow (Hibiscus moscheutos) or with the sword-like foliage of New Zealand flax (Phormium tenax).

This groundcover is moderately salt tolerant.

Wildlife Value: Attracts songbirds.  This plant is resistant to damage by deer.
