A really stunning flower, made up of just four brilliantly white petals around a prominent yellow stamen, flowers in large clusters. Also known as Mock Orange, this species of Philadelphus is a large deciduous shrub that has masses of fragrant white flowers in early summer. The stems arch gracefully to make a wonderful display when flowering, a timeless classic.
