Trachelospermum jasminoides Care Guide

  • High

    Plant this vine in full sun (6-8 hours) where there is ample humidity.

  • Medium

    Water as the soil becomes dry. Growth is less vigorous and blooms will be sparse if it does not get watered about once every 10 days or more.

  • Low

    It can tolerate extremes in humidity from low to high.

  • 50 to 90

    Outdoor Landscape Plant (this does not apply for inside temps)

  • 8|9|10|11

    Outdoors in full sun (6-8 hrs.), to part sun (4-6 hrs.). In hotter, dryer climates protect it from the afternoon sun as this may scorch the leaves.

  • Yearly

    Use compost around the root system to invigorate or use a diluted fertilizer at 1/2 strength. This one doesn't need a lot of fertilizer to keep it growing beyond its boundaries.

  • Rarely

    Use a rich, well-draining potting soil, and fertilize with compost in the spring or early fall to get it established before winter. Use a trellis to support its abundant vegetation and fragrant flowers in season. Water the grower pot and let set an hour before transplanting. When ready to transplant, turn the grower pot sideways and gently lift the container off the root system. If tightly entangled, loosen the root system with your fingers and place in the soil. Cover around the root system not leaving any air bubbles. Water thoroughly to settle the soil and dampen the roots. If training to reach upward, train the vine to climb into the trellis by tying off it's branches loosely with ribbon or twine. The container can be nearby a wall or high fence to train it to branch and reach as it grows six feet in one year and reaching 30 feet over time. Protect the container in zones 8-9 in the winter months if below freezing. It can be used as a ground cover. Plant the same in well-drained soil with compost added for aeration. Prune it in the spring and summer to keep within its boundaries.

  • As needed

    Clip in the early spring and summer to tidy the vine. Remove any dead or damaged foliage and stems. It will not harm it to cut it completely back if it is overgrown. Use gloves while pruning as the milky sap may irritate the skin.

  • Cuttings

    Trim 6 inches of healthy cuttings from the ends and below a leaf node. Trim off the leaves from the bottom and dip into the rooting hormone. Stick the cutting into a potting mix or damp sand and place a plastic bag over it to hold in the moisture. Keep the container in a warm room at 75°F in bright, indirect sun. Roots will develop within the month. Slightly tug on the stem to check its anchoring. Once established after 6 weeks, move to the garden, keeping the ground moist but not overwatered as this can lead to root rot.
