Delicious, sweetly scented pure white flowers appear en masse in May filling the garden with their fragrance, each flower has a central group of colourful and unique yellow stamens. Philadelphus Lemoinei has pale to mid green foliage, lighter in colour than most other cultivars. This is a more compact variety, ideal where space is limted and the larger types may grow just a little too big.
Plant these hardy shrubs anywhere where their prolific scent can be appreciated, close to a seating area or nearer the house if possible. They make good back of border plants and are ideal for for natural/wilder areas of the garden too. All Mock Orange varieties may be used as an informal flowering hedge or screen, with timely pruning or trimming straight after flowering the new growth will ensure a good show of flowers the following year.
Philadelphus shrubs are easy to grow, they are suitable for any soil type that doesnt get waterlogged during wet spells and they do well in sun or partial shade. When planting we recommend adding Rootgrow to the planting holes to give them the very best start.
Our Lemoinei Mock Orange plants are supplied as sturdy 2 year old potted specimens, ready to plant directly into their final positions and should produce their first flowers in the Spring after planting.
