Confederate Jasmine Plants Turning Brown

I have jasmine planted in containers on top of my pergola and they are turning brown. What could be issue and will it grow fast in containers?

Leaves can turn brown if they get too cold.

Thanks but it is in the 90s here since they were planted

They like it that is good. I can't have them in my neck of the woods now as our weather is too cold and too rainy.

Over watering is one cause of browning leaves. These are super sensitive plants. It seems like any change in their "routine" gets them "stressed". Just like most humans, I guess.

There is a nice article about them and their care on one of my favorite garden go to sites.

Let me make sure that I understand what you are saying; You have your Jasmine plants planted in containers and placed on top of your pergola?


  • How large are your containers and how long have you had them planted and placed on the top?
  • Do your containers have good drainage? Jasmine will get root rot if soil stays wet over a long period of time (and leaves will turn brown and fall off).
  • Or maybe they are not getting enough water? How do you reach the top to water the containers? (Just trying to figure out how you are taking care of these plants that high up.)
  • As a general rule most people would plant the Jasmine in the ground (maybe at the four corners) and let it grow up the posts and eventually cover the top.
  • Jasmine is very easy to grow with the exceptions that it gets water on a regular basis but does not "stand" in water for long periods.
  • 90 degrees is pretty hot if your plants are in the heat all day but it seems they may still grow if tended well.
  • I have always found that Jasmine grows best when planted in the ground but I do see it growing in containers but I do not believe it will grow any faster in a container.

  • I guess you are trying to get a good cover on your pergola as fast as possible but I'm not real sure this will work as it seems it will be a big problem to water (or even check the soil) when the container is 6 to 10 feet in the air.
