Sun/part shade; evergreen, with yellow trumpet flowers in spring and fall.
The twining vines mound up informally and can reach 20 feet, piling over trees and structures if allowed. But not to worry; in general jessamine is easily tamed. It’s long-lived in suburban landscapes throughout central and East Texas.
It is, however, toxic to grazing livestock.
Prune with hand pruners in spring (AFTER blooming) and again as needed during summer; where possible, cut stems to their base, which may be the main vine. The sap can be irritating — so wear gloves.
Mulch to maintain some soil moisture.
