Philadelphus x ‘White Rock’
at Digging Dog


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.

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