Philadelphus 'Virginal'

Mock Orange

Hardy Shrub

 Customer Rating
This hardy deciduous shrub deserves a prominent spot in garden borders. The fully double blooms of Philadelphus 'Virginal' unfurl their pure white petals in early summer to release the most exquisite 'orange blossom' perfume. Like all Mock Orange shrubs, this stunning variety attracts bees and other insects to its nectar rich flowers. With a vigorous, upright habit, Philadelphus makes a useful large shrub for wildlife and woodland gardens, and even copes well in coastal conditions. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2.5m (8').

Ideal For:
cottage gardens, scented gardens, wildlife gardens, specimen plant, woodland garden, coastal garden

June, July

Grow Philadelphus plants in a sunny or semi shaded position, in any well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant Mock Orange plants at the same depth as they were planted in their pots. Backfill the planting hole and water well to settle the soil.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Philadelphus requires little pruning. After flowering cut back stems to a healthy bud and remove a fifth of the old stems to ground level.

  1. 'Zesty' mock orange blossom

    By Catherine Evans 07-05-2013

    When my bare root plant arrived I was a little unsure but I potted it up as instructed and now the buds are bursting out. Feeling very protective of the little plant but pleased its so healthy and vigourous.
