Gardeners' Notes:

even though it says this is a zone 9 plant, I have had this survive in the ground in my zone 7 garden for two winters now. It has climbed a trellis and has really pretty green, white, pink and red leaves.

Has anyone seen the new variety of Asian Jasmine named Salsa? It's leaves are beautifully colored with yellow, cream, bronze and red. I saw a pot of it today at Cornelius nursery here in Houston, but it was only for display and not for sale. I would love to know where some could be purchased.

The City of Richardson, TX has planted Asian Jasmine (but not the 'Variegata' version) throughout the city in road medians, parks, and other locations where grass is difficult to maintain, especially in deeply shaded locations. I have established a plot of approximately 180 square feet in an area that receives less than 1 hour of direct sunlight per day. The soil is slightly alkaline and is the typical black gumbo found in this part of Texas. The plant is extremely invasive. It must be edged about 3 times a year and cut back to 5 or 6 inches in height about every 2 years. It replaced a stand of Vinca Minor which apparently didn't approve of the alkalinity.

Absolutely hardy here in zone 8a for me in ground or in container and a plant that looks good year round. Lots of pure white leaves, a few red, and the rest variegated green/white. Nice in arrangements. Have grown on entrygate trellis and easy to keep new growth tucked in. Healthy wih no pest or disease damage. Keeps variegation well in full sun all day or just morning or afternoon sun. Small blooms but deliciously scented..I wouldn't notice blooms except for scent, but with such beautiful foliage I don't need flowers. joshz8a
