Philadelphus coronarius is a deciduous shrub with light green leaves and arching stems which
bear a profusion of wonderfully fragrant white flowers. Its common name is Mock Orange, a name it shares with other plants not related to it! The branches on
mine are weighed down with flowers this month, and the smell as I walk round the garden is just heavenly! Once the flowers are over, I will cut the flowering
stems back to promote healthy new growth which will flower next year.
