Sweet Mock Orange
Fast Growing Ornamental Shrub
The Sweet Mock Orange is a deciduous shrub with ornamental features. One would look great as a shrub boarder along your house or driveway.
Your Mock Orange gets its name from its flowers that resemble orange blossoms. The one inch, five petaled flowers will adorn your late spring yard with their subtle fragrance and elegant beauty.
The flowers appear as clusters, standing out in contrast against the dark green leaves as they’re sprinkled across the shrub’s surface. The yellow stamens offer a breath of color against the satiny white background of the petals. Overall, it’s a breathtaking display of floral majesty.
The Mock Orange is a multi-stemmed shrub, and grows to about 10 feet tall with an equal spread. The branches spread and arch a bit, but the shrub has an overall rounded shape.
It’s fast growing, so you won’t have to wait long for it to mature. It’s also drought and wind resistant. The bark is a bit rough and shreddy, lending an interesting rugged appearance after the leaves turn a slight yellow hue and drop for winter.
The Sweet Mock Orange is an attractive shrub that will provide you with a spectacular floral display each spring. Add one or several today to your landscape.
