Philadelphus schrenkii

Philadelphus schrenkii - Schrenk’s mock-orange

Schrenk’s mock-orange is a relative newcomer among the shrubs available in Finland. Native to eastern Asia, it is like the sweet mock-orange (Philadelphus coronarius) in having strongly scented flowers.

For a mock-orange it is a large shrub but if space permits, well worth growing, especially further north, being very winter hardy. Otherwise it is a fairly ordinary mock-orange, but among the easiest to grow, not that any of them are difficult.
