Carolina Jessamine

Gelsemium sempervirens

Native to the southeastern US, the Carolina Jasmine is a popular landscape choice despite all parts containing a toxin that can be fatal if consumed.


This Jasmine grows best in the average homeowners landscape as it will grow only up to 20 feet, and responds will to regular pruning. Outstanding yellow trumpet shaped flowers appear early in the spring and persist for several weeks. Leaf spot is a common issue in wet months, so it is best planted in well ventilated and sunny areas.
