'Madison' is more compact and has slightly bigger leaves than other Confederate jasmine and also has a "sweeter" orange-blossom scent, compared to the more jasmine-like scent of most other Confederate jasmine. While other varieties usually flower in the spring, 'Madison' can continue flowering in lighter flushes throughout the summer.
