Star Jasmine - Trachelospermum Jasminoides
The star jasmine "Trachelospermum Jasminoides" is a strikingly pretty, flowering climbing plant. It can be seen to be related to the oleander. From June to October, its white, fleshy star-shaped flowers appear in umbel-shaped stems. The rotationally symmetrical flowers with a diameter of up to 2 centimetres are not only beautiful but also give off a pleasant vanilla scent. They are somewhat reminiscent of the wheel of a spinning windmill. The jasmine fragrance's floral ornamentation is an ideal contrast to the dark green, shiny oval leaves. These embellish the star jasmine even in the colder seasons.
Jasmine plants beautify fences, walls and bare spaces
The home of this attractive climbing plant is the forest edge. In Japan, eastern China, Korea and northern Vietnam, the jasmine climbs to a height of 10 metres. Here it reaches heights of 4 to 5 metres. Over time, its twining lianas become woody. With a growth rate of up to 25 centimetres per year, it does not tend to become overgrown. The jasmine finds a sunny to semi-shady spot ideal. It is an ideal ground cover that, in addition to its lush flowers, suppresses noxious weeds. At the same time, it provides a hiding place and habitat for many native animals. As an exotic, graceful, evergreen hedge plant, star jasmine is an eye-catcher in any garden. For a dense hedge, 5 plants are needed per metre. The jasmine is prunable and can be shaped on the trellis.
Jasmine flowers: lay the table for bumblebees and butterflies!
With strong flowering jasmine, you provide insects with a safe, appealing food source from early summer into autumn. Our native buzzing, furry bumblebees love the yellow calyxes of jasmine flowers! The stalked flowers are specialised in moths. The pretty butterflies of the dark daytime, such as rams or night peacocks, as well as other useful insects are magically attracted to the scent of jasmine flowers.
Combination of easy-care and fantastically beautiful
The Jasmine fragrance is grateful for moderate doses of water. It easily withstands dry periods. The attractive jasmine even wants its soil to dry out before watering again. So a short trip by its gardener for a few days in midsummer is no problem. The flat-rooted plant spreads its root network just below the soil surface in all directions and can thus thrive even on heavily compacted soil layers or rocks.
This climbing plant combines three advantages in one: it is evergreen, flowering and spreads a wonderful fragrance in your garden. The star jasmine, also called Trachelospermum Jasminoides, gets its name from the star-shaped flowers it produces between June and October. The climbing jasmine is a very grateful plant that feels at home anywhere. Plant the Trachelospermum Jasminoides in either a full sun or partial shade area in your garden. It also tolerates Rück and topiary. The star jasmine is hardy and can therefore be planted without any problems. It tolerates temperatures of up to -20 °C after a few years.
