Special Attributes

'Butterscotch', a variety of Carolina Yellow Jessamine, also called Jasmine, is unique in that it produces blooms in late winter to early spring and then again in fall!   Its yellow, sweetly fragrant, funnel-shaped blooms contrast nicely with the shiny, dark green evergreen leaves that cover its dense, twining stems.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 12 feet tall or long or more, and 2 to 4 feet wide, Carolina Jessamine is a perfect vine for use to climb along the top of fences, on a trellis, on a mailbox, over an arbor or any other structure that might benefit from or support the flowering vine. It can also be useful as a ground cover for slopes or banks where it can sprawl and naturalize or to climb into smaller trees where early flowering is especially noticeable.

Spacing:  3-6' apart on fences

Cultural Preferences

Butterscotch Jessamine is very easy to grow. It tolerates a wide range of soils, even somewhat boggy 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.
