Trachelospermum jasminoides or Southern Jasmine is a popular, intensely fragrant, and easy to grow spring blooming vine. Pink Showers is a newly introduced cultivar that produces fragrant pale pink flowers and has a longer blooming period than the white type, typically beginning in the mid to late spring and lasting til early fall in sub-tropical to tropical climates.
This plant has been among the best loved and most versatile landscape plants across the South, literally for centuries, making it a true heirloom. It has graced the walls and pathways of castles, and cottages alike, lending both lush green pathways and wonderful romantic fragrance to the garden.
This beautiful vine is actually not a jasmine at all. The common Jasmine comes from the intense jasmine like fragrance that wafts from the clusters of white pinwheel shaped flowers that cover it in the late spring to early summer however, this attractive vigorous vine is not a true jasmine. It is a member of the Apocynaceae (Dogbane) plant family, and can be utilized in a number of interesting ways.
The slender wiry stems will quickly intertwine and climb to cover fences, trellises, or any support or structure that is nearby.
This is a wonderful plant for a beginning gardener, as it establishes quickly and is amazingly easy to care for. It's a great choice for planting near areas that will be used for outdoor entertaining as the wonderful intense fragrance is carried on the breeze and will permeate the air all around.It is tolerant of most any soil that drains well, and is quite drought tolerant once it is well established, making it a good choice for outlying areas.
