Mock Orange is a very hardy shrub with deep green shiny leaves. It has a naturally mounding shape spreading equally to its height. This plant is very useful as a hedge or anchor plant near buildings because it will only need trimming twice a year.
Mock Orange will grow in full shade, half-sun and if planted in fall or winter will acclimate to full sun with very little leaf scorch. They grow twice a year in desert climates, spring and fall. It is best to trim before the growth spurt so recovery is quick leaving the beautiful soft foliage in the desired shape.
Plant them in well-draining soil and water deeply to encourage deep roots.
