(Munz and McMinn both divide Philadelphus lewisii into two subspecies, but plants from both locations 'key out' the same here.) Wild Mock Orange is a deciduous shrub that grows fast to 6 ft. in height. Mock Orange has fragrant, white, 2 inch flowers in May-July. This shrub, with a form and growth pattern similar to a lilac, is native to the northwestern United States. Mock Orange will survive full sun to part shade, is garden tolerant, drought tolerant and very showy when in flower. In very dry areas, a little added watering helps the plant to produce more flowers. We've had people drive 500 miles to buy this one. We have also had people buy it in the nursery only when they see it in flower. The form of Mock Orange makes this plant a great background shrub, and the good-sized, fragrant flowers add to its appeal.

Philadelphus lewisii's foliage type is deciduous.
