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