Miniature Snowflake Mockorange

Miniature Snowflake Mockorange

It’s not a magnolia and it isn’t a peony.  It’s a mockorange!  As the name suggests the extremely fragrant scent of mockorange is reminiscent of orange blossoms.  Pictured here is a selection from Bailey Nurseries called Miniature Snowflake. A wonderful plant for sunny or lightly shaded foundation plantings, perennial beds and borders or even low hedges.  Miniature Snowflake matures at around 3’ tall and 2’ wide.  Their dark green, disease resistant foliage makes the perfect backdrop for their early summer blossoms.  Mockorange can tolerate a wide range of soils, but will perform best in a moist, well-drained organic rich location.  Amend with compost or manure for vigorous, long lived plants and enjoy them for years to come!
