florida254 name this shrub

lap39September 21, 2009

I saw this hedge/shrub/vine in Gainesville, Fl. At some time during the summer months it has gorgeous small yellow flowers all over it. The picture I have does not show it when it was flowering. I stopped in and ask the resident for the name. She did not know. She said she cuts it off like a hedge to keep it from getting out of hand. It sort of looked like a vine that was draping over. On her fence she had planted it as a devider between her and the neighbor and it had grown very high probably about 10 feet. The neighbor allowed me to take some pieces. Everywhere that touched the ground it had rooted. The picture I am attaching only shows the leaves so I hope someone can identify it. If not I am going to try to get a picture when it blooms.

It wasn't much of a picture but I think I have identified it. I believe it to be Carolina Jasmine. It is really beautiful when it is blooming.
