Trachelospermum jasminoides is the Latin name for Star Jasmine, but it is also sometimes referred to as Confederate Jasmine or Chinese Ivy in Asia. A recipient of the RHS 'Award for Garden Merit', Star Jasmine features clusters of white star-shaped flowers that are highly fragrant (stronger scent at night) and bloom from mid to late summer. The oval pointed leaves are a glossy deep-green, with new growth being a lighter shade of green or even a bronze-pink colour for a pretty contrast. As the weather cools, the foliage becomes bronzed and deep red for additional seasonal interest and winter colour.
This lovely self-twining evergreen provides stunning coverage and colour all year round, including winter, and is highly attractive to pollinators such as bees and butterflies, making Star Jasmine an excellent and versatile choice for any garden.
Star Jasmine is commonly used a climbing vine on a trellis or pergola to provide screening, shade and framing and can also be used to disguise less appealing aesthetics. However it is most popular and planted for its intensely perfumed fragrance in summer. Aside from providing stunning wall cover, Star Jasmine is also ideal for ground cover or as a low spreading evergreen hedge, and will even thrive in containers. Whether you’re after a plant to provide height or spread, Trachelospermum jasminoides offers both options.
Star Jasmine has a fairly dense structure, and due to its attractive appearance and unique fragrance, this particular plant lends itself to being planted in a stand-alone position in the garden. This is so that Star Jasmine can be appreciated for its individual qualities. However, it still grows well with other climbers such as Clematis.
Trachelospermum jasminoides begins with a slow growth rate until the plant is established. Once established, the growth rate will increase significantly. Please note that the average growth rate for Star Jasmine plants is dependent on different variables. These include the soil type, the amount of light the plant receives, location and climate conditions. If Star Jasmine is grown in milder conditions, the growth rate tends to be faster compared to cooler climates. Trachelospermum jasminoides can grow up to several feet a year.
Caring for Trachelospermum jasminoides is relatively straight forward and minimal. If you’re preferred choice is to grow Star Jasmine plants as a climber, initial training is required in the early stages. However, following this, minimal care or maintenance is needed after, except for simple pruning or pinching of the tips to support the lateral growth. To use Star Jasmine for ground cover, the height is much easier to maintain around 60cm, with simple trimming of any upward stems. Pruning is recommended after flowering. Trachelospermum jasminoides can be fertilised in spring if required, for example, if the leaves turn yellow. While Star Jasmine plants are fairly drought tolerant, adding a layer of mulch to the surface of the soil will retain moisture and benefit the plant in warm weather conditions.
It is recommended to plant Star Jasmine with a minimum of 1.5m apart due to the spreading nature.

All Costs & Min. Order
Small Hand Tools, Irrigation
Tall Box Delivery
Pot Size 10L & Above
*For some plants that are too heavy or too tall to be packed in cardboard boxes we use pallet deliveries. In these circumstances, we require a minimum order value of £200 (ex VAT) for free delivery, or you can make a contribution towards the delivery cost. Look out for the information on product pages which explains this further where applicable and if your order is for less than £200 (ex VAT) please call or email us to agree upon a delivery contribution. This requirement only applies to those plants where it is clearly indicated on the product page
Pallet deliveries are always undertaken on an 18-tonne vehicle (similar in size to a standard refuse vehicle). If for any reason you require a smaller vehicle please contact our sales team who can arrange this for you. There will be an additional surcharge applied for small vehicle deliveries
99% of our orders are dispatched within 3 to 5 working days of receipt and most the day after the order is placed. We can do “next day delivery” on many of our products for an additional £12 (incl VAT) but please call on 01257 494 491 before placing your order to check.
We can also deliver on a specified date to suit you. Please indicate the date you would like to receive delivery in the notes section of the checkout (or place your order by phone) and we’ll do our utmost to meet that date.
Occasional hiccups can occur (such as broken down vehicles) and although we are very experienced in logistics we cannot be held liable for costs incurred or inconvenience due to late deliveries - see terms and conditions for more information.
You will receive an email or telephone call confirming the dispatch of your order 24/48 hours before it arrives with you.
Exceptions to our quick turnaround timescale
Pre-orders - if you have placed an order that includes products on pre-order, then they will be dispatched to you as soon as they are available. If your order includes pre-order bare roots or root balls you will be notified once they are being dispatched (root balls from mid to late October and bare roots from early to mid-November).
Root balls - lifting root balls involves the use of complex, heavy machinery, this lifting is carried out twice a week in the root ball season so we do still have a prompt turnaround timescale but if your order has just missed one lifting, it will be a few days before we lift again. We are always happy to confirm when we can deliver to you before you order. The benefit of this method of supplying root balls is that they are always fresh and therefore have a higher success rate than root balls that are stored out of the soil.
Weather conditions can affect dispatch - bare root and root ball plants are not lifted if the ground is too cold (it damages the roots) and the delivery of all plants can be affected if the water supply is frozen (because we water all plants before packing). Extremely hot weather can also be challenging and occasionally we hold backorders for species that are particularly vulnerable. We ask our customers to be mindful of bank holidays when couriers are not active.
We'd like to stress that although there are exceptions, the vast majority of our orders are dispatched extremely quickly and we are proud of our logistics developed over many years of delivering plants to tens of thousands of customers.
We inspect plants carefully before dispatch but accept that very occasionally things may go wrong.
You can return your plants (within 14 days) for a refund or replacement (we’ll help with the process of returning). If your plants arrived damaged then returns are free of charge. However, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. If you’d like to return your plants because of a change of plan or if we do not agree that the plants are significantly damaged (the loss of a few leaves in transit or a loose pot on arrival, for example, wouldn't be harmful to the plants), then we may ask you to pay the full or partial return costs if you still wanted to return them. We’re very reasonable and always aim for complete satisfaction as demonstrated by our amazing Feefo customer reviews which can be viewed here.
Should you wish to return any products that you have over-bought, no longer require or purchased in error you will incur both a return cost (different charges for pallets and Boxes) and the original cost of delivery incurred by Best4hedging. Please contact the Service team for charges and/or to organise a return. Plants will be subject to a quality control check from our Nursery upon return before any refund is authorised and processed.
Please note that in the case of damaged plants, if you have not notified us of a problem within 14 days of delivery, we consider you to have accepted the plants and Best4Hedging has no further liability for them should they fail.
