This is a great vine simply because it is easily manageable and won’t take over the world like other invasive vines do. This plant does well on arbors and trellis as a vine or it can be used as a groundcover as well. Although referred to as a Jasmine, Jasmine is in the Jasminum genus. Although all parts of this plant are poisonous, it is still considered by me, to be one of the best outdoor vines for a landscape.
