Philadelphus Virginal (3L)
Also known as Mock Orange
This tall, vigorous variety of mock orange looks wonderful towards the back of a mixed or shrub border, where on warm summer evenings, the delicate, orange-blossom fragrance floats on the breeze.
It is great for attracting bees and is highly fragrant, pure white flowers among dark green leaves that turn yellow in autumn.
