About This Plant

Without the spectacular and aromatic blooms, Mexican Orange, or Mock Orange, would still be an attractive shrub with of its deep, glossy green leaves and manageable form. However as spring arrives, profuse accents of white flower clusters adorn the plant with profusion. True to its name, strong aromas of orange and citrus accompany the blooms. The shrub grows to reach 4-6' tall and wide but can be kept smaller with easy pruning. Try using this shrub as a informal screen/hedge or to liven up some darker areas in the landscape.
