Mock orange

Philadelphus

The perfume of mock orange blossoms is a sweet enough memory to last all year in the garden. Mock orange plants grow lanky and have fairly nondescript foliage except for 'Aurea', the golden mock orange. Newer compact varieties are your best bet for a plant you can tuck away and forget about until it comes into bloom in early summer. The larger varieties make useful screen plants. Pest-free and drought tolerant, mock orange does best in a fertile, well-drained soil.
