Philadelphus 'Mont Blanc' - mock orange

Mock orange is a reliable and absolutely maintenance-free shrub of old European gardens. It is popular for its snow white, scented flowers. They are single on this variety and come out profusely every year in early summer. They release a heavy fragrance that can hardly be mistaken for anything else. Mont Blanc is a hybrid of a compact shape, growing about 1m tall and wide.

Deciduous leaves are 4-6 cm long, bright to deep green, ovate. We recommend removing old branches after flowering to keep it young and rich. It is soil adaptable and does best in full sun. Fully hardy to minimum -29°C (USDA zone 5).
