This native evergreen vine is South Carolina’s state flower. The fragrant flowers open in late winter to early spring. This makes it a good nectar source for bees and butterflies. Modest in growth, it can easily be trained on a fence or trellis. It also can be allowed to scramble through hedgerows. Attach twine to start it if you want it to climb on a larger tree. It will thrive in sun or part shade in average to dry soil. It is generally deer-resistant.
