ASIATIC JASMINE

Sun/shade; evergreen and low-growing, eventually forming a dense twining groundcover that makes a nice alternative to grass. Asiatic jasmine is typically used around live oaks where it’s too dark to grow grass. Slow to establish, it forms a fairly permanent fixture in the shaded landscape. In full sun, however, it may decline without regular care. Grooming is performed by hedging during the growing season; if needed, in late winter, it can be mowed down to 4 inches to restart the foliage; raise the blades to the highest setting (and watch for sprinkler heads!)
