I bought one staked "climbing" Jasmine for the corner junction of two walls. I bought a few others that were "ground-cover" variety.

Here we are about a year later and my "climber" is doing ok with some support wires staked to the wall, however, I've had to replant my "ground cover" specimens next to the wall as they were climbing/tangling all over the soil and up and around the A/C unit.

I'm pretty familiar with the species and I'm thinking the Home Depot plant distributor mis-labeled the climbing plants as the ground-cover variety...???

Please help!



Thanks in advance!

Thank you! So, the store was correct in selling me the plants as "ground cover"?

The one that was labeled "climbing" was mounted on a stick...

I've got vertical wires about 20" apart on the wall left from an old Bougainvillea that was removed, however it's not looking too effective for this plant.

Would you suggest/advise a trellis?

Although as roadrunner has said, your pictures are not easy to see, I think you probably have Jasmine officinale there. Here is a picture of the flowers

This is a climber, and one that is commonplace here in the UK. It starts off as a low sprawling bushy mess before it starts to climb, but is quite vigorous once it gets going.

We have lots of it in our gardens :) I think trellis is a very good idea.

I had Jasmine O growing against my fence and the neighbours garden. It became such a pest, almost equaly as rampant as convulvus major (bindweed). It had to go. In time it returned, growing through the fence panels, choking my roses. Self layering.
