Star Jasmine is an energetic grower that can very rapidly cover a wire fence or climb to the top of a tree. If a gardener is willing to give it a wire trellis, the jasmine will quickly envelop pillars with an array of leaves and will spread itself over the beams of a pergola. Landscapers like to use this creeper as a ground cover because it rapidly fills large tracts of land in both the hottest sun and in the cool shade of deciduous trees.
In modern horticulture and particularly in small gardens, Star Jasmine has become an iconic pot plant because it can so easily be trained up steel obelisks or wooden tepees. Planted in hanging baskets, the stems tumble beautifully over the sides when they are heavy with flowers.
