‘Pride of Augusta’ Carolina Jasmine

Showy Spring Bloomer

'Pride of Augusta' Carolina Jasmine (or Jessamine) sports double yellow blooms, setting it apart from the native variety of this evergreen vine. Bursts into bloom in early spring, greeting visitors and providing an early food source for pollinators with cheery yellow trumpets set against glossy green leaves. Allow it to reach its full height, up to 20 feet, or train to a trellis or fence for a full, bushy effect. Please note, this plant is toxic to humans, but also very resistant to deer.
