Jasmine

Zone Daufuskie Island SC | paul.craig added on January 16, 2017 | Answered

I had/have a 50' jasmine plant climbing a pine tree in Daufuskie Island, SC. The landscaper cut it at the root 6" above ground, thinking it was poison ivy. It's dead, yet the root is there. Will it regrow? Is there anything I should do other than hunt down the landscaper?

    Fortunately, your jasmine has an excellent chance of growing back from the roots. Jasmine tolerates hard pruning well, even pruning down to ground level. It might take a few years to get to flowering size, but your jasmine should grow back just fine.
