Jasmine is a woody vine with fragrant blossoms that may be used as a climbing plant or a ground cover. Varieties of jasmine are variously known as Confederate Jasmine, Star Jasmine, Winter Jasmine or Asiatic Jasmine. Asiatic Jasmine is a true ground cover and will not grow in vine form and does not produce flowers or noticeable seeds. You can propagate the various forms of jasmine reliably through cuttings.

Mist the plants inside the bag any time they seem dry. Remove the bag once the cuttings form roots. Continue to grow the cuttings in the planting tray until the roots fill the tray. Then transplant them into larger containers or harden them off by placing them in the shade during daylight hours for one week before transplanting them into the ground.
