Good question. Here in zone 8b, I prefer to plant in fall because roots continue to develop in winter even when above-ground parts are often dormant.
Asiatic jasmine is plenty cold-hardy in your climate
zone. You needn't wait until spring to plant. The temps don't drop
enough long enough to be a problem. Furthermore, once planted and
irrigated deeply, newly planted plants don't require as much irrigation
during our cool seasons.
