Commercial Landscaping

Trachelospermum jasminoides ‘Tricolor’ is a great variety to use in commercial landscaping and at home. The tri-colour is a variegated, compacted form of the common star jasmine.

An attractive plant, it is used as a ground cover or in pots and containers. This variety is generally chosen for its colourful foliage as it rarely flowers and is a popular plant choice in commercial landscaping, such as schools, hospitals and aged care facilities.  We recommend using this variety as it’s hardy and doesn’t require a great deal of maintenance to keep it looking its best.

Where to plant it: prefers partial shade, but will tolerate full sun
Soil: moist with good drainage
Height: less than 40 cms
Drought Tolerant: yes
Salt Tolerant: yes
