Star jasmine, also referred to as confederate jasmine, is a fast-growing vine that blooms during the spring in South Carolina.

Even when the small star-like flowers are not in bloom, the deep green leaves create a good ground cover in the garden. The vine is also used to create privacy or a decorative touch.
