|Care||Thrives in enriched, slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish extensive root system. Provide support such as trellis or arbor, or allow to ramble on the ground. Prune annually to control size. Sap may irritate; protect skin when pruning. Not fit for human or animal consumption.|
|Lore||The genus Gelsemium was classified by French botanist, Antoine Jussieu and named it for the similarity to Jasmine. These plants contain a potent alkaloid similar to strychnine.|
