Evergreen sprawling shrub or vine prized for its fragrant, pristine white flowers, which are used to flavor teas and rice. Individual flowers are about an inch across, and typically borne in clusters of 3-12. Established plants produce blooms as long as the weather stays warm. Leaves along the vining stems are glossy dark green, oval with a pointed tip. In areas where its top growth is not killed back by freezes, it can climb to about 10 feet, but it stays smaller and doesn't bloom until late summer where it must regrow from the roots.
'Maid of Orleans' has a bushy growth habit, and can even be grown on windowsills.
