My Plant of the Day - Dwarf Snowflake Mock Orange

Today's favorite plant is Philadelphus x virginalis 'Dwarf Snowflake' - A medium sized deciduous shrub, 3-4’ high, equal width, stiffly upright, compact, densely branched. 

The flowers are white, double, and very fragrant (like an orange blossom). 

This shrub is wonderful when in bloom, the rest of the year this shrub sort of fades into the background, so be sure to plant with other more interesting plants.

Like all Philadelphus, easy to grow, vigorous, little or no care. Hardy to Zone 4-7.
