Q.Can Confederate Jasmine (Star Jasmine) Be Reasonably Controlled?

Zone 8b | LibLady added on April 17, 2021 | Answered

Hello! I want to plant Confederate Jasmine next to a large trellis, about 7 feet wide and 6 feet high, because I want a fragrant evergreen vine. However, I don’t want the plant to conquer the yard, as I have read that it’s quite fast growing and a bit aggressive. The trellis wires form large diamonds and I would like the plant to conform somewhat so that the diamond shapes are visible. Is Confederate Jasmine entirely the wrong plant for this trellis? I am open to other suggestions. I live in the South Carolina lowcountry in zone 8b. Thank you!

It sounds like it will fit just perfectly, here! Pruning can keep it in check, as well. Here is an article that will help:
