Asian jasmine (Trachelospermum asiaticum) has been a popular evergreen ground cover in the South for years, and when we say weed smothering, we mean it with this one. It's for those who want a very low, very dense hedge. If you're in the market for that with a little added pizzazz, check out these fabulous variegated cultivars: 'Gold Brocade' (shown here)
Trachelospermum asiaticum - quote "There can’t be many better evergreen ground cover plants than this woodland plant from East Asia. As long as it is watered it will grow quite happily in sun and shade. It makes dense mats of dark glossy green leaves and exquisite fragrant jasmine like flowers. It will grow happily under trees and shrubs as long as the shade isn’t too deep. 25cm x 70cm."
