Moderately frost hardy vine that grows in full sun to full shade, asian jasmine has oval leaves 1-2 inches long that are glossy and dark green. It has a compact habit and will grow prostrate on the ground or cling to a wall. It is the answer for anyone wanting that elusive combination: an evergreen climber with heavily scented flowers. The foliage is neat and unobtrusive, and makes a good background for the clusters of creamy white flowers that appear in mid-summer. It is particularly good for growing over an arch or arbour where the delicious perfume can be best appreciated.
Large clear yellow bell shaped flowers bloom along the stem in late summer and early Fall. This is one of the best toad lilies but it is slower to spread making an impressive clump in 2-3 years. Preferring a sheltered semi-shaded site with adequate moisture they make ideal subjects for the woodland garden. Propagation: By dividing rhizomes, tubers, corms or bulbs (including offsets); from seed.
Some authors have classified as a Tripteris subgenus of Osteospermum, but more recent studies support separating it as a distinct genus.
The genus Tristellateia consists of about 30 species of woody vines, native to tropical East Africa, Madagascar, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Islands. T. australasiae, a native from Southeast Asia to New Caledonia, is a vigorous climber with 6 inch long ovate to lance-shaped, lush green leaves. The yellow flowers have red stamens and are borne in terminal, loose recemes. Each inflorescence has up to 30 flowers. Fruits are star-like capsule with wings. When they mature, they become a brownish capsule.
