The Mock Orange (Philadelphus) is part of the Hydrangeaceae family. We stock two varieties of Mock Orange throughout the year including: Philadelphus Belle Etoile and Philadelphus Virginal. Native to North and Central America, Asia and South East Europe, these hedges produce a wonderful, citrus scent throughout June and July thanks to the white flowers blooming during this time of year.
They are a deciduous shrub that is very easy to grow, withstanding most soil types, but preferably enjoys moist and easily drained soils. It thrives well also in both sun and shade. Mock Orange hedging plants are normally grown as an informal hedge, reaching heights of six to eight feet. It works well being grown as a back of border shrub, and will need pruning once a year. We recommend pruning these hedges once the flowers have faded after flowering season. For hedging purposes we would recommend planting 3 per metre of hedge, or at wider spacing they make a wonderful addition to a shrub border.
