Atrosanguinea', 'Tangerine Beauty', 'Jekyll'
Wonderful climbing vine that produces clouds of trumpet flowers in shades ranging from golden yellow to orange and deep red. While this plant is found in the wild as an understory plant, it performs best in full sun where its early summer flowers are frequented by hummingbirds.
‘Margarita’ is the most cold-tolerant form of Carolina Jessamine. It is grown for its glossy, semi-evergreen leaves, fragrant yellow flowers in spring, and ease of cultivation. It can be grown as a groundcover or planted to scramble over a retaining wall.
This Kentucky native vine is excellent for trellises and for scrambling over stone walls where it produces late spring/early summer trumpets of red, orange and yellow and sporadically through the summer. An excellent hummingbird plant. Best for full sun sites in any average soil.
