Contrary to its name, Confederate jasmine is not a true jasmine. It is not native to North Carolina but is actually native to China and is known scientifically as Trachelospermum jasminoides. It flowers in early spring and summer and produces clusters of small, white flowers that produce a wonderful fragrance.

The plant is an evergreen vine and is quite easy to grow. It produces a milky, sticky sap so you need to clean your pruning shears immediately after pruning. I have one friend who refuses to grow it because it gunks up her pruning tools.
