Gelsemium sempervirens 'Pride of Augusta'
Double Jessamine (Cultivar)
Evergreen twining vine with bright yellow fragrant flowers in spring. This species produces few variants but this selection with double flowers was probably introduced many years ago by the famous but now defunct Fruitland Nursery of Augusta, Georgia. Plant on fence or trellis in full sun or partial shade. Best in rather sandy soils but adaptable. Yellow Jessamine is the state flower of South Carolina.
USDA Hardiness Zone 7-9
