Snowbelle Mock Orange

Availability: Out of stock

For a fantastic early summertime display, tuck dwarf Snowbelle Mock Orange (Philadelphus 'Snowbelle') here and there throughout your landscape. It is a very cold hardy variety first developed in Canada. Imagine enjoying a shorter and more compact plant that is simply loaded with clusters of deeply fragrant, double, pure white blossoms in the late spring or early summer. Heaven!

The charming flowers smell like orange blossoms. This flowering shrub is a treasure for property owners and the dark green foliage makes a perfect contrast to the snow-white blooms. Snowbelle is ideal for smaller gardens with a tidy, compact profile, this handsome, low-growing cultivar exhibits exceptional heat and cold tolerance!

Snowbelle is a multi-stemmed plant that grows upright and Mock Orange has many uses in the landscape. After blooming and pruning, the plant grows full to the ground and blends well into the surrounding landscape with its rich green summer foliage. Cold-hardy throughout USDA growing zones 4 to 8, these smaller shrubs mature at 3-4 feet in height and width!

Planting and Application:

Soften up existing landscaping with these small flowering shrubs. Snowbelles can be added on the sunny side of Lilac bushes or tall evergreen trees. Mix with other later flowering plants, like Roses, to add color and fragrance to your garden.

Plant in the ground or use in large outdoor containers that match your home's exterior for a coordinating boost of style. Or, go bold with large outdoor planters on either side of your front yard. Snowbelle is a perfect fit for a year-round Thriller. Style it any way you like.

Low hedges help define your garden space. Use several Snowbelles along the length of your patio, or up the front sidewalk. Plant them 2 feet apart on center to create a solid hedge. Measure from the center of one to the center.

Your guests and neighbors will thank you! That delicious citrus scent perfumes your neighborhood in bloom.

Gardening can be such a personal experience. Love fairy houses? Have kids or grandkids? Create a special tiny focal point in a Secret Garden. Try a cute little Snowbelle as a backdrop for Miniature Roses and add a child-sized table and chairs and fun outdoor accessories. They'll play out there for hours!

Butterflies love the pristine white blooms, too. Get older kids involved with a sparkly pen, special notebook, and identification book to track all the flying visitors to their yard.

Because it is so noted for its fragrance, we recommend planting it under a kitchen or bedroom window, near your entryways, walkways, or driveways. Plant it where you'll enjoy its beauty and experience the fragrance of the flower.

  • Wonderful Citrus Fragrance

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Give Snowbelle a spot in full sun or partial shade. In Zones 7 and 8, it may do best in the morning sun and afternoon shade. Mulch the plant to 3 to 4 inches deep and spread mulch out 3 feet from the outside of the canopy. This will keep the root system cool and cut down on surface evaporation. Snowbelle Mock Orange is adaptable to many soil types, but they must be well-drained. If you see puddles that remain long after a rainstorm, add soil in a heaped mound 18 - 24 inches above the lay of your land. Plant directly in that mound. Provide a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. When planted properly, the plant can tolerate brief periods of drought, and it is deer resistant. This carefree beauty has no real pest or disease problems.

Train your shrubs to produce plenty of side branches with yearly pruning right after the flowers fade. Do a simple pinching back after the flowers are finished to encourage lateral buds to develop. This will help your shrub develop a full, bushy growth habit over time. Simply snip off the last few inches of every branch; it should take you about 5 minutes. Let's face it. If doing that little garden job gives you more of those luscious flowers next year, it's worth it!
