Introducing the Philadelphus coronarius Garden Mockorange, Sweet Mock Orange! This stunning species of deciduous shrubs is native to Southern Europe and is a popular ornamental plant in temperate regions. With its profuse sweetly scented white blossoms in early summer, it adds a touch of elegance and beauty to any garden.

Easy to grow, this plant thrives in any moderately fertile soil, including thin soils over chalk. It also grows well in heavy clay soils and tolerates poor soils. While it can tolerate semi-shade, it prefers a position in full sun where it will flower more freely.

The Philadelphus coronarius is a deciduous shrub that can grow up to 3 meters tall and 2.5 meters wide. It has toothed leaves and bowl-shaped white flowers with prominent stamens. The species blooms are abundant and very fragrant, though the cultivars may have a slightly less intense fragrance. It is important to note that it is not related to the similarly named dogwood varieties.

One of the interesting facts about the Philadelphus coronarius is that its specific epithet, "coronarius," means "used for garlands." This highlights its historical use and popularity as a decorative plant.

In terms of cultivation, this plant is known for its adaptability. It is hardy in temperatures as low as -25°C and can tolerate pruning well. In fact, one third of the stems can be cut down to the ground each year to promote fresh growth and heavier flowering. It is also a fast-growing plant, making it a great choice for those looking to add beauty to their garden quickly.

If you're considering adding a touch of elegance and fragrance to your garden, the Philadelphus coronarius Garden Mockorange, Sweet Mock Orange is a fantastic choice. Its sweet-scented white blossoms and adaptability make it a popular ornamental plant. Don't miss out on the chance to have this beauty in your garden!
