Trachelospermum jasminoides ’Madison’ is an evergreen broadleaf vine that produces intensely fragrant, white star flowers in late spring or early summer. The fragrance is enchanting and made Dr. Dirr remark over lunch years past on a visit to Athens "never did a cheeseburger taste (and smell) so delectable." This clone ’Madison’ is somewhat more cold hardy than the species and was introduced by Jane Symmes at Cedar Lane Farms (in Madison, GA) for which we should all give thanks. It can be used as a vine or a ground cover. Partial shade is best but it will do in full sun if in a happy site which includes good soil, well drained, out of harsh winds. Zones 7-10. Killed back to roots winter of 2013-2014 when we had a low temperature of -1 degrees. Has re-sprouted and is doing fine. Additional images courtesy of Raulston Arboretum.
