Mock oranges are fragrant, white-flowering shrubs that are used in border plantings or in screen plantings. The main interest for the mock orange are their profusion of white, slightly fragrant flowers in late spring that last into early summer. This makes them great screen bushes for around a deck, patio, or walkway some where the delicate nature of the blooms can be enjoyed. These blooms attract butterflies and other pollinator. These native shrubs are adaptable to many conditions but for high bloom performance plant in full sun when possible.

The plant came well packaged and it was much bigger than I expected. Very good price for the size. I planted it right away and it seems to be doing well.
Plant in perfect condition and is thriving well.
Received the plant and transplanted the next day. Extra care was given but a lot of leaves were lost taking it out of the box and unpacking and seemed dry. Is this normal? It looks good planted. I hope it will survive our winter and revives itself next spring.
