Confederate jasmine is a solid performer in zones 9 and higher. It is a favorite for planting around trellises, pergolas, arches, mailboxes, and locations by widows. The sweet-smelling flowers it produces in the summer are the star feature of this plant. Plant this vigorous vine by a window to maximize the enjoyment of the fragrance when the windows are open. Jasmine will do best when planted in fertile soil. Plant them about 2 feet apart to maximize coverage.
Once the jasmine has finished blooming, you can trim the plant to keep it clean, tidy, and encourage bushing out in the next season. This plant is somewhat drought tolerant once it becomes established. Fertilize the confederate jasmine about three times a year with a quality, well-balanced fertilizer starting in the early spring.
