Star jasmine vines (Trachelospermum jasminoides) are not true jasmine plants, but they do look similar. The evergreen foliage is dark green and glossy, and it bears fragrant white flowers during the spring and summer. The vines grow quickly, and work well on a trellis, arbor, fence or as ground cover. Star jasmine requires partial to full sun and warm weather, and it grows best in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 8 through 11. Star jasmine is easy to care for and grows quickly with minimal maintenance and fertilization.
Water star jasmine vines once a week. Increase watering during extremely hot or dry periods, but allow the soil to dry between waterings. Plants grown in containers may require water several times weekly. When the top inch of soil becomes dry apply water.
Fertilize star jasmine at the beginning of the growing season with 10-10-10 fertilizer. Spread the fertilizer around the base of the plant being sure not to butt against the lower branches. Water the fertilizer into the ground after applying.
