Trachelospermum FLAT MAT - star jasmine
Dense compact evergreen carpet plant, perfect over a patio railing to enjoy the softly scented flowers. Flat Mat™ will spread to 4m to cover embankments, rockeries, under trees and shrubs where you need evergreen ground cover.
Fast to establish, and a good choice if you think that Trachelospermum jasminoides might be a bit frost-sensitive for your garden. This one is lighter in scent than jasminoides too, and flatter growing for a more ground-hugging cover.
USE FOR : Very versatile as a border plant, low-growing ground cover, container growing, or trained over arches and trellises.
CLIMATE: Should come through a light frost once established, in a sheltered garden. Its parent, Trachelospermum asiaticum, is more cold-tolerant than T. jasminoides.
PLANTING : Plant in well drained soil in full sun to part shade in the garden.
CARE : Needs little maintenance once established. Prune as desired to maintain compact growth, or to form a topiary shape.
MATURE HEIGHT & WIDTH : 30-40 cm H x 3-4 m W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
