I've grown the splendid Trachelospermum jasminoides 'Variegata' near my home for nearly 20 years. Trachelospermum jasminoides 'Variegatum' is one of the finest vines for the Southeast with thick, round evergreen leaves, edged and blotched with white. The foliage adorns the twining vine which attaches via octopus-like tentacles to inanimate objects like fences, gazebos, and old cars. In April and May (NC), Trachelospermum jasminoides 'Variegatum' is laden with the most exquisitely fragrant, small white flowers you can imagine...like walking by the department store perfume counter in front of a commissioned saleswoman! This clone is one of the hardiest we have grown, having sailed through 0 degrees F in 1996.
