A dwarf star jasmine with small yellow and green variegated leaves evergreen small-growing vine with glossy leaves that are much smaller than those of the standard Trachelospermum asiaticum.

The plant has a tight, compact growth with ovate to elliptic leaves ranging from quite tiny to around 1/4 inch in length.

One Fine Vine
Started 1980
If unpruned it will climb or crawl on the ground, but it can be pruned to make a miniature shrub. When treated this way it makes a nice bonsai.

  1. I have a Trachelospermum Asiaticum and it is 100% vine, no way to get it to grow bonsai like you have it. On the other hand there are many varieties of the Asiatic variety. I wrote about some of these varieties on my blog Star Jasmine Trachelospermum & Trachelospermum Asiaticum. I prefer your standard Trachelospermim Jasminoides myself. They have some pretty neat varieties.
