Dies back to the ground during our winters (zone9a) but comes right back when it warms up. Tolerant of overly moist locations.

I have this growing in a pot which I bring in for the winter. It's a beautiful plant and is trying to bloom here and there, even in February. Is this really hardy to zone 4??? The tag on mine when I bought it said 10 above. I would be interested if anyone has first-hand knowledge of its actual hardiness.

A very attractive form of the common jasmine. It has the wonderfully scented flowers combined with interestingly variegated leaves.
