Mock Orange (Philadelphus coronarius) Plant Profile!

After a long break, we are happy to continue our individual Texas native plants profiles and today we will put the spotlight on Mock Orange (Philadelphus coronarius).

 

From the entry:

“Do not mock Mock Orange as it is an excellent Texas adapted tree. This fast growing shrub will turn eventually in to a small and handsome tree. At spring time, Mock Orange’s big white flowers will offer exquisitely pleasant smell. It is somewhat drought resistant once established, disease and pest free and is highly deer resistant. Small flowering, deer resistant tree that is also low maintenance? Mock Orange is definitely worth a consideration. Are you mocking now?”

 

What do you think about Mock Orange? Do you grow it yourself? What kind of experience and insights you have to share? We love featuring our readers’ plant pictures and Xeriscapes!
