Philadelphus Belle Etiole 5 litre pot
Philadelphus is often called Mock Orange.
We offer two varieties, both with single petalled flowers rather than doubles. They are intensely fragrant and when in flower our customers are intoxicated by them.
Belle Etoile is delightful, growing into a medium sized deciduous shrub. Please remember that she flowers on two year old wood so prune lightly, if at all.
The very highly scented single white flowers have a gorgeous raspberry coloured throat, and the best thing of all is that it smells very strongly of BUBBLEGUM!
We sell out of these every year when we attend shows as they flower from late May through June, with graceful arching stems covered in mid-green leaves, which are dropped for the wintertime only to re-emerge each spring.
Good for all our pollinators, and us too!
