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.
