Star Jasmine

Star Jasmine has a wonderful scent in the evening. Our Star Jasmine plants grow in a 24-inch wide trench on the side of the driveway. They get afternoon sun. They handle drought. They handle no fertilizers. They are 40 years old. I have to keep pruning them to prevent them from growing up the wall.

Like all jasmines (Star, Chilean, others), it’s not a jasmine. WTF


Anytime you cut or break a branch of the star jasmine, the white juice spreads. It is a skin irritant.
