    Can jasminum grow wild in the woods? I think there may be some near my house that I would like to transplant if it is, indeed, jasminum. The only thing is, it isn't in the form of a vine, but it looks just like the pics I've seen of jasminum.

    This is a wild guess, but you might have come across a species of Aureolaria or false foxglove, which is not a vine and is parasitic on oak trees. See if it looks like this.

    It doesn't look like the picture sent from tipularia. The one growing on the edge of my yard has small, delicate-looking white flowers, and they aren't tubular. There are about 7 thin petals. I'm trying to upload a picture that looks like it from a website I found, but it's not working. The picture is titled "white jasminum" but I'm just not sure that's what it is at my house. The plants I've seen are scattered around, but none are at the base of a tree, and no vines. The plants are low to the ground, maybe 6 inches at the most, and the blooms are gone before you know it. I'm just wondering if I can replant some of these, make them grow for me, and have a lot of them where I want them.

    Ah, I thought you meant jasmine. Didn't know about Jasminum, but here are some photos.
