Philadelphus x ‘White Rock’
at Digging Dog

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.

Pure white semidouble blossoms create a delightful passage, ushering the last days of spring into summerís warm embrace. Distinguished by a lovely orange scent, the pearly-hued profusion of large, cut flower-perfect blooms nearly envelopes ĎWhite Rockís pleasing rounded habit. Appreciative of bright, somewhat moist, well-drained sites and a trim once the flowers are spent, this Philadelphus beckons us when in bloom, while its deciduous rich green foliage maintains a tailored appearance throughout the season.

Blooms May-June

Size: 4' 0"–6' 0" high x 5' 0"–7' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
