I am looking for a jasmine vine. I would like a strong jasmine scent. I donít mind if the vine is a Jessamine or other non ďtrueĒ jasmine. Iíd prefer white flowers. I live in zone 6b. Prefer a long-blooming vine.
The kicker is that Iím looking for a delicate, dwarfish vine. I have a very small area that I can use for growing a vine up the house. I donít want the vine to take over or damage the house. Nor do I want the vine to take over the ground surrounding its stem, because I want a small garden of small plants to exist in that space. (ie I donít want a shrubby jasmine.)
So, do any of you know a vine that will fit the bill?
I've tried growing jasmine twice in a protected area, southern exposure, zone 6a. I failed both times. Cannas, calla lilies, and other borderline plants have done quite well, but not jasmine...true or otherwise.
