Yellow Carolina Jasmine
Gelsium sempervirens

Carolina Jasmine Vine, also called Carolina Jessamine, produces an abundance of very fragrant, trumpet-shaped, bright-yellow flowers in late winter to early spring. It is a vigorous evergreen vine that will grow or climb 10 feet or more in a relatively short period of time to cover fences, arbors, arches, mailboxes, posts, trellises and many other structures. The lustrous dark green foliage develops a purple cast in winter. 

Carolina Jasmine is very easy to grow. It tolerates a wide range of soils, however is also exceptionally drought tolerant. It prefers a moist, well-drained soil of average fertility. We have it growing in sunny and partially shaded sites and it does equally as well in both exposures. USDA Zones 7a-10b Find Your Zone >

Already blooming
My jasmine vine came on a trellis and was in very good condition even though the box was somewhat damaged during shipping. Planted it when it arrived and it is now starting to bloom with warmer weather. Very impressed with this nursery and would recommend them to anyone.
