I bought my Star Jasmine last May. It bloomed all the way through to August. It grew REALLY fast! Every morning I would go out to look and see it's progress and every morning I would find that it had grown at least 1/2" over night! It went dormant in October, I think, and it's growing steadily as of right now. I kept it under the roof of my porch over winter and moved it back in to the sun today, as spring sets in pretty early around here. There should be one more cold snap around Easter, and then BAM! Back in to full swing! As soon as she starts blooming I'll post some pics. This is my favorite next to my Gardenia!
