Full Sun, Partial Sun

The Sunseeker™ Carolina Jessamine is a fast-growing twining vine that will cover any trellis or fence with glossy evergreen foliage. In spring it is smothered in large trumpet-shaped flowers that are glowing gold, and highly fragrant. It often blooms again in fall. This is a special selection that is much more cold-hardy than the original plant, growing well in zone 6, with extra-large blossoms as well. Use it to cover unsightly fences and walls, grow it into trees, or train it up trellis panels in a bed.

  • Fragrant golden trumpet booms in April and May
  • Attractive evergreen foliage when not in bloom
  • Vigorous twining vine for fences and trellis
  • Completely cold hardy in zone 6
  • Easily grown and drought resistant

In full sun is the best location for the Sunseeker™ Carolina Jessamine, but it will take a little partial shade as well. Any well-drained soil is suitable, and once established it is drought resistant. Trim as needed following the spring blooming. This plant is poisonous, so deer won’t touch it. Pests and diseases are also rarely seen, and very little attention is needed to enjoy a wonderful floral display every spring.
