Hello Hello Plants Nursery Campbellfield Melbourne Victoria Australia Trachelospermum jasminoides Chinese Star Jasmine Flowering around a window

Easily the most popular groundcover and climber, Star Jasmine is picked for its heavily fragrant flowers and robust green foliage. An incredibly hardy and easy to grow plant, Trachelospermum suits most garden styles and makes a really wonderful cover for unsightly places.
Star Jasmine can be used as a beautifully dense groundcover. Employed in this way will smother out weeds and create an easy to maintain garden bed, the edges trimmed a couple of times a year to maintain the smooth, flowing edge.
As a climber, Chinese Star Jasmine makes a great alternative to a hedge, particularly for narrow spaces. Best grown up a trellis or over framework on a fence, this evergreen climber makes a wonderful backdrop or feature. It doesn’t even have to be grown as a dense cover either! Make a real feature out of it, training the twisting vines over wire in a diamond configuration or cover an otherwise dull archway.
The fragrant flowers come out during the warmer months, filling the air with its beautiful jasmine fragrance. During the winter months the foliage turns a bronze-red in the cold, returning to its former green glory in the summer.
