Philadelphus x lemoinei Belle Etoile

July–September.



<i>Philadelphus</i> x <i>lemoinei</i> ‘Belle Etoile’

Philadelphus

Mock Orange

First introduced to Europe along with lilacs by Ambassador Ogier Ghiselin de Busbecq in 1562, this classic and easy-to-grow hollow-branched shrub was used by the Turks to make pipes. Its Latin name means “brotherly love” and its orange-blossomlike fragrance has enhanced teas, perfumes, and almost certainly, many friends’ walks in the garden.

Its name conjures thoughts of beautiful stars (Belle Etoile). Brushed with maroon at the base of each of the four petals, the white flowers unfurl just when spring blooming shrubs are finishing their display. In close proximity to an entrance or walkway amid Luzula ‘Auslese’ and Geranium ‘Ingwersen’s Variety’, this graceful shrub is easy to grow, deliciously scented and unmistakably choice.

Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high x 6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
