Asiatic Bonsai Jasmine. This diminutive Asiatic Jasmine is used extensively in Japan as a bonsai subject. Yes, that's right, a bonsai. It is kept pruned into a low mounding small plant which eventually develops a larger trunk. The resulting bonsai resembles an old live oak with its spreading crown. When first seeing this plant in Japan, I could scarcely believe that it was a Trachelospermum. Easily grown as an evergreen groundcover in sun or shade or as a pot plant. Its first flush of new growth is a showy orange/red. Very fast growing. To train it into a bonsai, it takes constant attention.
