Virginia jasmine is a climbing plant producing a multitude of magnificent orange-red trumpet-shaped flowers.
A vigorous climber, it clings on by itself and is ideal for covering a wall, a facade or a garden shed, for example. It can be used to dress a fence, a pergola,… but if you don’t want to use it as a climbing plant, you can also use it as an original ground cover.
By carrying out a severe cut regularly you can also compose a bush or even a hedge with this plant.
To grow, Virginia jasmine only needs rich, cool, well-draining soil. Rarely parasitized or diseased, it is remarkably resistant to heat and drought.
