Carolina jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens)


Carolina jessamine is admired for its sweetly-scented, canary-yellow flowers, this vine puts on a show from February to May, depending on the weather. The golden, funnel or trumpet-shaped blooms are one and a half inches long and seen in small clusters, with narrow, glossy evergreen foliage. The foliage bronzes in winter.
