Culture Needs:

Star jasmine can be grown in a variety of soils it can handle clay, acidic, sand, loam, and alkaline soil types. It can thrive in full sun to part shade as far as its lighting needs. So there are many places in the yard you can grow this. It is moderately drought tolerant after it is well established but likes moderate moisture. The plants need to be spaced from 36 to 60 inches apart. Also this is easy to propagate by using a hormone for rooting. This should be done in the spring of the year.

Same here - where ever the stems lie on the ground they root in no time.
Retired - now full-time gardener - and loving it!
