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

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. A popular bonsai subject in Japan but not seen very often in the US.

in 2008

Usage: Container, Groundcover, Hanging Basket, Rock Garden, Wall, Topiary, Bonsai, Espalier

Drought Tolerant
USDA Zone 7-10.

 is not  related to the true jasmines.
