A strongly vertical, columnar growth habit makes Illuminati Tower® Mockorange (Philadelphus coronarius 'Smnpvg' PP# 31865) a big hit in today's smaller gardens. Their erect branching and narrow habit brings a formal look…like a living exclamation point!

In late spring, you'll be treated to hundreds of fragrant white flowers that are stacked upon each other all the way up the branch! Their scintillating citrus scent freshens your whole yard for weeks.

Planting and Application:

Large, thick, dark green leaves are durable and cloak the branches from top to bottom. They are lush and allow Illuminati Tower Mockorange to be used as a pint-sized privacy screen.

  • Keep them in containers as an eye-catching "Thriller." Their pristine blooms bring an architectural polish to your balcony or patio.
  • Use several of them as a low hedge to help define your garden design. Space them 18 inches apart on center for a fast fill.
  • Use in a Scented Garden to delight yourself and your guests with wave after wave of fragrant flowers. Mockorange is an old-fashioned favorite, and Illuminati Tower is a selected cultivar that improves on the larger species with a tight growth habit.
  • Repeat them along the length of your mixed garden border in full sun or part shade. You'll appreciate their energetic sophistication all year long…as their vertical branches look gorgeous underneath a cap of light snowfall.
  • A pair of them make very effective garden sentries. Stand them at attention, planted on either side of your garden gate!

#ProPlantTips for Care: 

Plant in full sun or partial shade with at least four hours of sunlight a day. Look for a planting site with rich, well-drained soil to achieve the best results.

  • We highly recommend that you use symbiotic Nature Hills Root Booster in the planting hole of new shrubs for life-long support. Get more expert planting tips from the NatureHills.com Horticulture team.
  • Mockorange does best with supplemental water on a regular basis, especially when the weather gets dry. Mulch to a depth of three inches over the root zone, then pull it away from directly touching the stems.
  • Prune to shape only after the flowering is done for the season. Illuminati Tower Mockorange blooms on old wood; please don't wait too long to prune or you'll risk cutting off next year's flower buds.
