Evergreen Is Standard Margarita

Is a standard margarita evergreen a perennial?

I think your spelling may be off a bit. A margarita is a pizza or a cocktail. A marguerite daisy is a tender perennial. There are, however, some plant varieites with the name Margarita, such as the Yew Margarita (an evergreen shrub), the kumquat Fortunella margarita (small shrub/fruit tree), and a variety of Carolina Jasmine known as Gelsemium sempervirens 'Margarita' (a perennial vine).

Duet Jessamine

Very healthy looking Duet Jessamine with plenty of growth is not producing any flowers. Planted in spring. Has tripled in size with lots of very green vines and leaves but no sign of any flowers.

This could be a to much Nitrogen in the soil and a lack of Phosphorous.
You can fertilize with Bone Meal to correct this and encourage flowering.

Carolina Jessamine

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.

Most rapidly growing plants need a year or two to really get established (i.e. they are growing their roots). Once they are established, they grow rapidly. Consider this year its settling in year and next year you should see the kind of growth you are looking for.

Carolina Jasmine

Planted Carolina jasmine last spring, and our pergola was covered with the vines. Over the winter it died except for a few leaves at the base. Should the plant be dug up and replaced, or will it return?

Depending on how cold it got during the winter, the plant may still grow back-either the roots or part of the stem are likely still alive. The best thing to do is wait until late spring or summer to see if it starts growing back. If not, you can replace it.
