Star Jasmine Hedge Plant Description
The evergreen Star Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) is a beautiful shrub that is sure to look stunning in any garden. It has glossy green leaves, offset by its delicate, white starry flowers that carry a divine fragrance. During the colder months, the leaves can turn striking shades of bronze and red, adding winter colour to the garden.
A fast-growing plant, Star Jasmine can climb up a trellis or a wall with ease, forming an eye-catching 'living screen' effect, or make an attractive frame when grown over pergolas and doorways. Trachelospermum jasminoides can reach up to 9m in height when trained as a climbing plant, with a spread of around 1.5m, so a planting distance of between 1 - 1.5m is recommended to give them enough space to thrive.
Happiest in sunny and sheltered conditions, Star Jasmine can also grow and flower well in partial shade. It prefers moist and well-drained soils, but it will thrive in most types of soil.
For a more established hedge or garden screening, Star Jasmine is also available all year round as an instant screening hedge. These hedging screens are trough-grown with several plants growing over a sturdy steel frame, which are a cost-effective and space-saving way to bring the striking style of a Star Jasmine hedge complete with the security and privacy of a fence to your garden. We have a range of Instant Hedging Screens page
available to bring immediate impact to your garden.
Star Jasmine is available all year round.
Youll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long youre willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section
Jasmine Star (Trachelospermum Jasminoides) equires only minimal initial training as a climber, after which it grows happily over framework without much intervention; lateral growth can be encouraged by pinching out the tips of the plant. Pruning, if necessary, should be carried out after flowering to keep growth contained to the required height and shape. Planting density/distance is as shown but you can vary this depending on your budget and level of patience.
