    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what type of plant this is? I think it may be Star Jasmine? When I first moved into this house a lot of the plants in the garden were half dead. This vine is on my back fence and was originaly just green and white leaves. I cared for it a bit and now that it has gotten a little warmer it is all green with beautiful little white flowers all over it. I would really love to know for sure if it is Star Jasmine so that I can plant it all over the house that I buy. The flowers smell so nice, I am in love with it.

    It does look like Star Jasmine, Trachelospermum jasminoides.

    It's pretty easy to propagate by layering. I've done it a few times just for the experience. It does take a little while to produce roots, but if you're not in a great rush you could save yourself a few dollars and have some fun experimenting along the way....
