Trachelospermum jasminoides from Mary, SC

Posted on |

What is this very viney plant that has grows quite aggressively around our oak tree and around its raised base area, in dry sandy soil? 1st pic, close up; 2nd pic, far away view.

Hi Mary,

your vine appears to be Trachelospermum jasminoides, the Star jasmine, also called Confederate jasmine. If it flowers, please send another picture to confirm this.
