Carolina Jessamine Pruning

Posted by hubaobao NC (My Page) on

We recently purchased a house with a pergola that has robust Carolina Jessamine as a canopy. The pergola is positioned suched that one of its corners touches the corner of the house/roof.

Since the vines are in the gutters, I want to prune back as much as possible without harming the canopy. It is very thick and just had some flowers this week (Thanksgiving)!

Please provide advice on how to prune and control this vine. I've read many forums advising to wait until late Winter. How much can i prune away? When is the best time?

RE: Carolina Jessamine Pruning

Just get your clippers and cut it back to the ground and pull it down. It will grow back.
