Mock Orange Snowbelle

Looking for a way to add a sweet, refreshing fragrance to your garden? Look no further than Snowbelle, the compact shrub that packs a powerful punch of citrusy goodness. Its double blooms are a striking bright white color, and they appear all over gracefully arching stems, adding a sophisticated and formal touch to any landscape.

But don’t let its elegance fool you – Snowbelle is also a tough and reliable plant, making it a great choice for smaller gardens, mass plantings, or even as part of a hedge. It may be a slow and steady grower, but it becomes more impressive with every passing year.

If you’re planting Snowbelle for the first time, don’t be discouraged if you don’t see many flowers in the first blooming season. Trust us – the abundance of mid to late spring blooms in the years to come will be well worth the wait.

So why not add a touch of sweetness and sophistication to your garden with Philadelphus virginalis ‘Snowbelle’? It’s the perfect choice for anyone looking for a low-maintenance, yet stunningly beautiful shrub.
