Anyone tried it? It would be in a contained area.

Are you sure this plant is related to Asian Jasmin? It's attractive, but said not to tolerate heat well.

It's supposed to be a new cultivar. I saw it at a nursery last year. If you google it, it comes up.

I did, and came up with a low, blooming, cool weather groundcover called cerastium tomentosum, which would not appear, as far as I can make it out, to be related to trachaelospermum asiaticum, aka "Asian jasmine."

Hmmm. What I read said it was heat tolerant
But that doesn't usually mean squat here in tx, eh?
It felt like Asian jasmine when I pawed it. I'll call our local nursery and see if it really is Asian jasmine. Interesting! Thanks.

When I googled "Snow in Summer Asian Jasmine" all the links list it as Trachelospermum asiaticum 'HOSNS'.

It's a very pretty plant and looks like it is certainly worth a try. Let us know how it does for you if you get it.

If you just google "Snow in Summer" you'll getcerastium tomentosum. I seem to recall there are several plants commonly called "Snow in Summer".

Here is a link that might be useful: Trachelospermum asiaticum 'HOSNS'

The description I read said it was suitable for zone 7 and points north.

Looks like Snow-in-Summer and Snow-N-Summer are indeed different plants.

Rachel,
Have you tried the jasmine?
I saw it about 3-4 weeks ago at a nursery and paid 8.00 for a very small pot of it.
I feel in love with the color of the leaves.
It is hardy here outside, but it is so small I am going to grow it out inside for the winter.
I also cut 2 small pieces of it off and am trying to root it so I have more of it.
I couldn't afford to buy any more than one small container of it that day. 8.00, wow, I hope it grows good for me.
Did you buy it? How did it grow?
See how pretty it is.

I'm so jealous! The garden center where I saw it was out and never got any more in. Let me know how it grows! I might have to order some.
