‘Belle Etoile’
“Mock Orange”

Philadelphus ‘Belle Etoile’ “Mock Orange” Philadelphus ‘Belle Etoile’ “Mock Orange”

One of the most fragrant Philadelphus with a longer flowering period, and a more compact habit. Consult any book on heirloom garden plants and you will certainly find Philadelphus listed prominently. They are a group of plants that exude old-fashioned charm. This hybrid of uncertain parentage from the 1900’s fills the garden mid-Spring through mid-Summer with an alluring and far-carrying scent of BUBBLEGUM! Much less cloying, in my opinion, than the citrusy smell of its cousins. The 2.5” white flowers form clusters of single with pink eyes. Forms a large, arching shrub with a relaxed form and handsome green leaves on dark stems. To 5’ tall and 6’ wide. Winter deciduous. DROUGHT TOLERANT once established!
