Philadelphus  Snowbelle


<i>Philadelphus</i> ‘Snowbelle’


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.

Gorgeous terminal clusters of snowy white, double blossoms ring in summer, filling the air with zesty citrus aromas. Whether it’s ‘Snowbells’s diminutive deep green foliage, the bouquets of a June wedding or a vase on your table, the amazing floral profusion affords a timeless elegance. Small enough for a garden urn or for flanking a pathway, this handsome, low growing Canadian cultivar exhibits a tidy, compact profile, and exceptional heat and cold tolerance.

Size: 4' 0" high x 4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
