Confederate jasmine, unlike as the name implies, is neither a true jasmine (Jasminum spp.), nor native to the southeastern United States. It is in fact, native to China and scientifically known as Trachelospermum jasminoides. It is a twisting vine, low, spreading ground cover or creeping shrub that blooms beautiful, white fragrant flowers in the spring and summer months. It is typically grown outdoors and is hardy in United States Department of Agriculture Plant Hardiness Zones 7 to 10, depending on the cultivator.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Water your Confederate jasmine in its current pot the day before transplanting. This will hydrate the plant and help reduce stress.
Incorporate 4 to 6 inches of organic matter such as leaf mold or compost into the planting soil to help improve water drainage. Work an area that is about 12 inches wide and deep. Choose a sunny or partially sunny location; however, keep in mind that the sunnier it is, the more a Confederate jasmine will bloom.
Take the plant out of its container. Turn it over and gently pull on the stem to remove it. If necessary, tap the sides or insert a knife along the edges to separate the soil from the container.
Plant Confederate jasmine to the same depth it was planted in its pot. Tamp down the soil lightly to remove any voids in the soil. Then, water it with an inch of water.
