Star Jasmine - 219/365

Star Jasmine, Trachelospermum jasminoides, is a flowering vine in the Apocynaceae family. Native to Asia, it's an evergreen woody vine that grows up to 10 feet high. The white flowers are quite fragrant, it's oil extracted from steam distilled for perfume or incense. It's commonly grown as an ornamental plant for gardens or used as a climbing vine or even a groundcover. It flowers in full sun, partial shade or total shade but requires well-drained soil as it can succumb to fungal infection if the soil is damp. It's widely used in California (this one found in Santa Cruz Mountains) and Southeastern US.
