Gelsemium sempervirens

Gelsemium sempervirens (Carolina Jasmine, Yellow Jessamine)

Carolina Jasmine, Yellow Jessamine

This vine climbs up tree trunks and into shrubs and small trees in the woods, especially along the edges where there is ample light. It does well on a fence, mailbox, cascades over a wall, or on an arbor in the full sun where the bright yellow flowers fill the canopy with freshly scented sweet fragrance. It has been tried as a ground cover but quickly climbs up anything nearby so requires diligent pruning.
