It typically does well in zone 9/9b although salt in the air may be a factor if you live close to the ocean.
I bought mine 2 years ago and its at least 15 feet if not more now. Love it - smells great! It is in a large pot (approx. 2 fet tall and 2.5 feet wide. Awesome!
It is not a "nice" pot per se, it is just the black plastic kind so I would recommend buying a nicer one.
Mine was about 18 inches.
I would recommend that a wood trellis be provided to support the vine - these are the type that wrap around a support, not the type (like ivy) that cling to a wall surface.
Yes, this plant will grow well in containers
This is the Star Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides). The one you're thinking of is the Night-Blooming Jasmine (Cestrum nocturnum)
Yes this plant can be grown as a hedge, but will require some sort of support such as a fence or trellis
I am reading this difference too. I live in 7b (Cape May) and have read that it will survive the winter on some sites, but all the top searches for this plant say zone 8-10. I am eager to find out how it survives.
Hi NUNZIO. Thank you for your question. Whether the Star Jasmine will be available in your store will depend on your planting zone. The Hardiness zone for this plant are zones 7 to 10. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC
