Has anyone had success overwintering Star (or "Confederate") Jasmine? If so, how? Thanks--

I bring my star jasmine inside and grow it under lights in my cool basement. Sometimes it even flowers there. In the late spring I leave it on the patio or sink the pot in the ground. I've had mine for several years.

No way, Jos (except as per mnswgal's suggestion). Gary

I have, and they're doing great. I did nothing special, other than bring them in during the winter. Probably even kept them too close to heating vents. I have 2 in 2-gallon pots, brought them in, kept them watered periodically, then put them outside this spring. They're on a sunny deck and although a bit slow to start really filling out after the winter, they're gorgeous and fragrant right now.

My star jasmine is in full bloom now and wonderfully fragrant. Other years it has bloomed two or three times during the summer. Wonder if the cool dry summer has caused the late bloom.
