Trachelospermum asiaticum (Jasmine, Asian)

Jasmine, Asian

Trachelospermum asiaticum

Contrary to the name, this is not a true Jasmine. Native to Asia, it has become widespread in the landscape as it is the most common choice when it comes to ground covers.
Fast and vigorous growing, this evergreen tolerates heat and adverse conditions with no real pest issues. It will prefer and perform better in rich well-drained soils, but is drought tolerant once established. Spreads easily as the stems sprout roots when coming into contact with the ground, and often gets thick enough to prevent most weeds from growing.
Although many other sources claim there are yellow and highly fragrant blooms, it's rare to see in Texas.
