Highlight nature. Peer through this vine-clad arbor and observe layer upon layer of shape, form, color and texture. Each plant is highlighted in sharp relief because of the way sunlight dances across its form.When you plan an island bed, lay out a perennial border or place a specimen tree, consider how the sun rises or sets in your landscape. Backlighting — nature's wonderful gift of illumination — can thoroughly change the mood of a garden view. Similarly, the light at dawn or dusk can magnify the intensity of a vignette, making it more alluring at that special moment when the daylight changes.

Carolina jessamine makes a very handsome arbor vine, and it can grow vigorously if planted in ideal conditions. Think about how your vine will climb and grow, and select a site where it will have a sturdy, accessible support system. Like many vines, Carolina jessamine is an opportunist that may grab onto nearby structures. Survey your planting site and take note of nearby trees or other structures that the vine may want to climb on. This vine will naturally climb into nearby treetops if left unchecked. Prune the plant after it flowers every year to keep it tidy. With vines it is better to prune lightly every year instead of pruning heavily every other year. Train the vine to follow an arbor or a lattice by lightly securing the vine stems with gardener’s tape or strips of flexible fabric. If you use it as a ground cover, prune the perimeter of the plant’s spread to maintain a compact form and keep it away from other areas of the garden.Similar species and cultivars:Gelsemium rankanii (swamp jessamine); flowers in fall and spring, but without the fragranceGelsemium sempervirens ‘Plena’ is a cultivar with double petals.More: Browse plants native to more regions of the U.S.See more vine guides on Houzz
