Golden Mock Orange Plant - Deciduous Shrub

  • Philadelphus coronarius 'Aureus' adds additional light to your garden in the form of its golden yellow/green leaves.
  • This hardy, deciduous shrub holds onto this foliage until the last possible moment to bring much needed brightness to the Autumn garden.
  • This desirable plant also has large numbers of creamy white blooms which carry a strong "orange" fragrance with them.

  • Eventual Height

    Can grow up to 1.5–2.5 metres in the right conditions.

  • Pot Size

    9 cm

  • Season of Interest

    Flowering: Summer

  • Light Required

    Most Mock Orange varieties like full sun or partial shade. They will not do well and will not flower profusely if planted in deep shade.

  • Watering

    These shrubs will rarely need watering once established as they have very deep root systems. However, plants grown in containers, or in soil that is not deep, will need watering when the weather is dry.

  • Best Growing Conditions

    To bring out the sweet fragrance of the flowers, the ideal planting position should be warm, sunny and sheltered but it will cope with partial shade and colder positions provided the soil is well-drained. Propagate by layering, hardwood cuttings or semi-hardwood cuttings. Prune out thin, old shoots after flowering. Time to ultimate height 5 to 10 years.
