  1. You are so lucky to have a spot where your Mock Orange can spread and seem so luxurious. Mine is beside the patio. This year has been so hot and dry that the flowers on it are so small and it doesn’t have the overpowering fragrance it usually has.

    • This one must have really deep roots as it never fails to flower well, even in very dry years. I am very lucky to have inherited it with the garden!

  2. Cathy that Philadelphus coronarius is a spectacular specimen very beautiful. I love their white flowers and their shape, how big it is and gorgeous. You have a treasure in your garden. Have a good week. πŸ™‚ Greetings from Margarita.

    • I didn’t prune it for the first few years I was here, and it had been neglected for years before that, so now I just cut out some of the oldest wood after it has finished flowering or in August/early September. It is a matter of luck that I have managed to keep the shape!

  3. I ‘liked’ this days ago but am returning to view it again and to say WOW! Such a beauty. I read that it was planted by previous owners, so what a GIFT. May you have quite a few weeks of blooming pleasure, Cathy.

    • Thank you March. It has lasted almost two weeks but the heat and heavy rain have shortened its flowering time this year. It was wonderful while it lasted though! My neighbours always admire it! πŸ™‚
