Quick Overview:

A reliable zone 6 Gelsemium? This is it!  A profuse display of clear yellow trumpet flowers in early summer with semi-evergreen foliage.
‘Margarita’ is a superior seedling selected by Don Jacobs of Eco Gardens in Decatur, Georgia. With its much larger, more prominent flowers, it was superior in every way to common seedlings, so Jacobs named it for his wife. He had no idea that it would survive winters to minus 25 F. as it has here in Pennsylvania. Gelsemium ‘Margarita’ is a Gold Medal Award winner from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society.

Description
