Mock Orange Plant - Deciduous shrub

  • VERY POPULAR - A very popular mock orange plant, and probably the best white double, Philadelphus Virginal is a large, vigorous, deciduous shrub with an upright, bushy habit, ideal for the back of a border.
  • BEES + BUTTERFLIES - The pretty buds unfurl in early summer, which fill the garden with delightful fragrance and attract bees and butterflies to the sweet and rich nectar of the flowers.
  • WHERE TO PLANT - We recommend planting this within borders or containers near a doorway or seating area, where the gorgeous perfume can be fully appreciated.
  • EVENTUAL SIZE - Height: 3m Spread: 2.5m.

  • 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.
