Another Star of Jasmine question

I was reading some of the other posts, but I have an unrelated question. I live in Washington state, and put in a star of jasmine last year. It did great through out the summer, and most of the winter, but by the end of winter it totally died. How hardy are these plants? We usually only get down to 30 degrees occasionally, and very rarely in the 20's. We get snow once or twice a winter, and it doesn't stay. I put a new plant in this spring, and would really like to keep it this time. Is there a way to protect it for the winters here?

Hi Kerri,

You don't say what your hardiness zone is and Washington state has zones 8 to 4. Star of jasmine - Trachelospermum jasminoides is hardy in zones 8 to 10, with some cultivars hardy to zone 7. Do you know your hardiness zone and which cultivar you have?

Here's a zip code zone finder in case you need it.

We are in zone 8 here. It should have made it, so I'm not sure what happened.

Kerri, thanks for getting back to me. I'm stumped too. When you dig it up, check the roots for rot. They also suffer from a stem rot. Take a look here.
