Carolina Jessamine is a sprawling native evergreen climbing vine that can also be a groundcover.  The shiny lance-like light green leaves can develop yellow or purple hues in winter.  Trumpet-shaped bright yellow, fragrant flowers bloom late winter to spring.  Prefers full sun and well-drained soils. The flowers and leaves are highly toxic if ingested.

Gelsemium sempervirens is an early nectar source for hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies.  The dense growth provides shelter in winter.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
