- History & LoreHistory:Introduced by Cedar Lane Farms of Madison, GA, this is a clone of the species Trachelospermum jasmeniodes that is considered to be a full zone hardier. Distinguishing features are its often slightly larger leaves which can have a fuzzy pubescence to the undersides, and flowers with a somewhat sweeter fragrance. Depending on soil and cultural conditions, it may exhibit a slightly more compact habit than the species.
