I need your jasmine recommendations

Conshohocken, PA

Hello!

I need your jasmine recommendations.

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?

What are your favorite jasmines?

Dublin, CA(Zone 9a)

Your limiting factor is going to be hardiness--I can't think of any jasmine-like vines that are hardy in zone 6.

Here are a few that are hardy to zone 7a so if the area is sheltered maybe they would have a chance:
Jasminum x stephanense: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/80118/
Jasminum beesianum: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/1392/ (doublecheck the hardiness on this one with other sources--Plant Files isn't always accurate and I am not personally familiar with this one)
Trachelospermum asiaticum: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/51490/ (check this one elsewhere also--I thought it was closer to zone 8 but maybe not)
Gelsemium sempervirens http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/1262/

Sidney, OH(Zone 6a)

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.
