Two questions, please: First, I've posted a picture of my plant labelled Snow-N-Summer Jasmine (Jazmin Snow-N-Summer) (Trachelospermum jasminoides 'HOSNS'); however, I'm wondering if it is not really Asian Jasmine. Would someone who knows both tell me how best to tell the difference?
Second, is this plant known for being an attractive meal for any particular animal? My small clump was completely destroyed, down to a few brown stems with ragged ends, within about 12 days of the date of the picture. It is, fortunately, coming out again.
As for blooming: this is the second season for this particular clump and I have seen no flowers; however, the variegation is stunning, so I am delighted with it. (The variegation just before it was eaten was much more pronounced than that in the posted picture.)

Extremely fast grower but didn't bloom for me until its 3rd season.

I planted Confederate Jasmine about 4 years ago and it has taken off like crazy with the evergreen leaves, however, it has only bloomed once! And that was right after it was planted. It grows up a trellis around my deck and looks great but would look much better with flowers. Any ideas why its not flowering?
