NCSC, Japanese garden area. This plant, now growing in the JC Raulston Arboretum in North Carolina, was given to us some years ago by JC himself as an unknown jasmine. Chances are it is part of a collection brought from Japan and placed there some years earlier by Barry Yinger. Whatever it's proper name, it's lovely, with long narrow leaves splashed cream, white, and coral -- some leaves nearly completely white -- all accented by dark stems. We use this frequently both in container and as a small ground cover planting. Flowers if allowed to grow to the top of a stone wall or other support. Provide summer water for best vigor. Has withstood at least two winters dipping into USDA zone 6.

A very beautiful species (Hillier)--hardier and more compact than T.jasminoides--providing a dense glossy EG cover to ground or wall; very fragrant creamy-white flowers; can be used as a house plant. Sun-PSh/Med
