Native Plant Portrait – Climbing-dogbane

Climbing Dogbane - Trachelospermum difformeBlooming now!

The climbing-dogbane vine (Trachelospermum difforme) can easily be mistaken for Carolina jasmine (Gelsemium sempervirens) when out of bloom. The opposite leaves on climbing-dogbane are similar, but slightly broader and not as thick, and have milky sap when compared to Carolina jasmine.
