 o
Confederate Jasmine "Madison" as houseplant?

Hey guys,

So my husband and I were at Lowes yesterday and I was checking out the plants outdoors and walked into this cloud of wonderful scents. I looked around and saw all the Jasmines and Honeysuckles. Sitting there were several Conderate Jasmine "Madison" plants, with tons of flowers. I bought one.

I was curious as to if this plant would flower and do well in my sunroom so I could have that fragrance in my house! I would only do this if I thought it would do well and not just suffer and flower poorly in there.

The sunroom has an eastern exposure on one side and a southern exposure on the other, however, there are our woods that occlude the sun a bit during different times of the day, so it gets a filtered amount of direct sun.

If not, I can just place it out front near our walkway, which gets full sun just about all day. Info on this plant? Thanks!

I have seen pictures of confederate jasmine used as a houseplant, though I've never tried one myself. I have them growing in my back yard in a very heavily shaded area, and they are still flowering, though not as vigorously as before the trees grew up around them. They only flower for 3 or 4 weeks in April or May, though, so don't expect that glorious scent to last.

I think that this plant, which isn't a jasmine at all, would merely languish inside a home.

I think Madison is supposed to be a more cold tolerant type. I’ve planted it outside twice and it died both times (Winter cold). I was thinking of growing it as a houseplant for a couple of years hoping a bigger plant would take the cold better. Haven’t tried it as a houseplant yet, so would love to hear if it would work. If you decide to plant it outside, I’m pretty sure it doesn’t like full sun.

The fragrant forum would be your best bet for finding others doing this.
