Philadelphus 'Belle étoile' brings a fresh, citrus aroma to the garden. With large fragrant, white flowers arriving in mid-summer and rich, ovate foliage, Mock Orange makes for an attractive specimen shrub or informal hedge.
Mock Orange grows especially well in urban polluted areas or salt laden coastal situations, and of course in 'normal' situations.
Mock Orange 'Belle Etoile' is perfect as a specimen shrub as well as attractive informal hedge.
Plant Mock Orange 'Belle Etoile' alone for an attractive feature, or combine your Mock Orange with other hedging shrubs.
Mock Orange is ideal for heights between 1.2-1.5m. Mock Orange 'Belle Etoile' has an average growth rate and can be expected to achieve 20-40cm a year.
Philadelphus can become a large shrub if left unattended. Once a year, after flowering, remove some of the oldest stems to thin out your Mock Orange hedge. At the same time, remove some of the spent flower stems to encourage the production of new growth which will carry the flowers in the following year.
