Mock orange has long been beloved for its romantic white flowers, full of a sweet, orange blossom fragrance. But mock oranges were a bit ratty and messy, not really garden-worthy plants. Illuminati Arch® mock orange changes that!
‘Illuminati Arch’ has elegantly arching branches with clean, handsome foliage that will not get ratty as leaves of the straight species do. Cascades of fragrant white flowers! Best growth and flowering in well-drained soils with consistent moisture. Blooms on old wood, so prune as needed immediately after flowering.
Height: 4 ft.
Spread: 4 ft.
Bloom time: May to June

According to Rutgers University, Philadelphus are “seldom severely damaged by deer.”
