I have searched but cannot find an answer. I read that carolina jessamine is a fast growing vine that you have to cut back a lot. I bought mine very early spring and it grew fast at first, but since June it seems to be at a stand still. We have had drought but I water plenty. Some of the leaves are a little yellow, but besides that it looks very healthy. It is in full sun and it’s very hot here in Louisiana. I just don’t know why it isn’t growing anymore. Thank you.
