Can a plant recover from sunburn and heat stress? If it’s not too severe, yes. I live in Tucson, Arizona where the sun is strong and the summer heat can be relentless. My Star Jasmine Vine burned last summer and again this summer. Here’s what I do with my sunburned and heat stressed Star Jasmine.
I didn’t plant the Star Jasmine (Confederate Jasmine, Trachelospermum jasminoides) in this location. One of the previous owners did. It grows against an east wall in the very back corner of my garden in an area not seen unless on the side patio. It looks good for 7-8 months out of the year but never as good as the many Star Jasmines I maintained in my professional gardening days in the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s a much more suitable climate for them.
