Philadelphus ‘Innocence’
at Digging Dog

Philadelphus  Innocence

Philadelphus

Mock Orange

First introduced to Europe along with lilacs by Ambassador Ogier Ghiselin de Busbecq in 1562, this classic and easy-to-grow hollow-branched shrub was used by the Turks to make pipes. Its Latin name means “brotherly love” and its orange-blossomlike fragrance has enhanced teas, perfumes, and almost certainly, many friends’ walks in the garden.

Philadelphus ‘Innocence’ full sun  partial shade

We like to inhale the intoxicating orange sweetness given up by these freely borne, pure white blossoms that openly welcome. Gathered at branch tips, the large 4-petaled flowers garnish ovate green leaves randomly splashed and streaked with creamy whites, yellows and golds. A courtly perfumed scene stealer, this 1900s Lemoine Nursery cross between Philadelphus microphyllus and Philadelphus coronarius matures into an imposing shrub with fluid, arching branches.

Blooms June.

Size: 8'–10' high x 8' wide; hardy to zone 5.
