General description of Philadelphus Virginal plants:
This Mock Orange bush is a lush shrub with fragrant, pure white flowers that have double rows of petals. Each flower is quite small, but they grow together and from a little distance they look like one big bloom. It's a very easy plant to grow and makes a good informal hedge plant or shrub for the back of a flower bed. You could grow one of the smaller clematis varieties through it, such as an early flowering viticella.
