Madison Star Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides 'Madison') is a cold-tolerant form of the popular climbing or spreading star jasmine. Deep green leaves highlight the clusters of incredibly fragrant creamy white flowers similar to orange blossoms.
Compared to Confederate Jasmine, Madison Star's cold hardiness, aroma, blooming period, and foliage are all slightly superior. Fast-growing Madison Star Jasmine is ideal for climbing along fences and trellises but will also make an excellent groundcover.

How to Care for Madison Star Jasmine
Before you buy a Madison Star Jasmine, make sure to read about the care instructions that are recommended to keep this plant healthy and thriving.
How do I plant a Madison Star Jasmine?
Madison Star Jasmine requires very minimal care and will grow in a variety of soils. If using as a ground cover, plant your Star Jasmine five feet apart and use clippings to propagate for more extensive growth. For better blooming, plant in full sun; however, Madison Star will thrive in partial shade to full shade without a problem. If you want your Jasmine plant to climb up a fence or trellis, plant near the base and train it to go up the structure. Madison Star Jasmine can thrive in urban areas with high levels of pollution and is a popular choice for planting on back patios with trellis fences. If you are planting in a container, use it as the “spiller” element and allow it to cascade down the edges of your planter.
How often do I water Madison Star Jasmine?
Madison Star Jasmine should be watered at least once a week in the landscape and more if planted in a container as the soil does not like to dry out. Potted Jasmine may need to be watered several times a week or when the top layer of soil is dry. If placing your Star Jasmine in full sun, keep a closer eye on watering in the summertime as it will dry out much faster in hot, dry conditions.
