I know many people who use Star Jasmine as a a privacy plant, all with varying degrees of success. As long as you plant and maintain the vine per the directions of the grower, you should be fine. There will be times that you will have to prune the vines back, since it is a vigorous grower. However the pros outweigh the cons of having this sweet-smelling vine. Watch for the hardiness of the plant in your area, especially if you live in higher elevations. They don't tolerate continuous, deep freezes. You may want to inquire further with the nursery you will be purchasing from, as there are different varieties.

Good luck!
