Sun/part shade, with dark, glossy evergreen leaves. It’s been called the South’s favorite vine, and a great garden plant for beginners: a vigorous, well-mannered and drought-hardy beauty that can scramble up fences and trees with relative ease. Like Asiatic jasmine, it can be used as a groundcover, although it will generally require some shearing to contain its climbing tendencies. The white star-shaped flowers can occur anytime during the warm season, but especially in mid-spring when their cool honey fragrance perfumes the night air.
