Mock oranges are 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 two plants are healthy and already have blooms although I am A bit disappointed that there is no fragrance from the plants. I planted them near the patio hoping to enjoy the supposedly wonderful smell.
My mock orange shrub arrived in excellent condition, very healthy and well established root system, Travis was super helpful in confirming my ship date and making sure the shrub arrived in great shape, I will definitely shop here again!
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.
Hello Shirley, we had a freeze prior to shipping these mock-oranges then some warmer weather. The result was dry leaves falling off the shrubs. As long as you apply a nice 2 inch layer of mulch to protect from cold you should be good to go! Let us know if you have any issues come spring.
