The Sweet Mock Orange (otherwise known as the English Dogwood or Philadelphus Coronarius) gives you an amazing fragrance that can be noticed throughout your yard.
You can find it in countless botanical parks and gardens… its known for its bright white blooms and citrus-like scent.
Spring sparks the unfurling of emerald green leaves that are serrated and shapely. This bright foliage provides a lush backdrop for the perfectly formed, creamy white blossoms that appear early in summer. The sweet perfume will fill your outdoor living area for several weeks while adding beauty all season long.
Multi-stemmed and upright, Sweet Mock Orange exhibits arching branches in an irregularly rounded form, and will reach mature heights of 8-10 feet with a similar spread in a relatively short period of time.
Plant Mock Orange shrubs in rows along your property line to create an ornamental privacy screen or use them as a decorative backdrop for lower growing shrubs. They look great in rows, and really smell great when planted in groups.
Flourishing in zones 4-8, this deciduous shrub is adaptable to most soil types. It is even drought-tolerant once established and pest and disease resistant. The Mock Orange is pretty easy to grow and low maintenance.
This is quickly becoming one of our most popular flowering shrubs.
