Cultural Practices:
Fertilize every two months in spring and summer. Star jasmines are twiners, they will climb on low trellises, or trees. They can also be grown as bushes by pinching off the tips of stems, or as ground cover. They grow relatively fast when the conditions are adequate.

Blooming Habits:
The fragrant star-like 1/2- to 1-inch flowers comes in the spring, and are enjoyed by honeybees.
