Wild Mock Orange (Philadelphus Lewisii) 50 seeds (#227)

Philadelphus lewisii is a medium-sized deciduous shrub grown for its late-spring to early-summer display of fragrant white flowers. It is native to seasonally moist valleys and slopes from southwestern Canada to the northwestern United States.
This fast-growing shrub has oval, smooth to weakly toothed, medium to dark green leaves and upright to arching, gray-brown stems. The four-petaled, citrus-scented blooms are borne in terminal and axillary clusters on the previous year's growth. They are followed by inconspicuous brown capsules containing numerous tiny seeds. Plants may self-sow.
Grow wild mockorange in full sun or light shade in moist, well-drained, acidic to mildly alkaline soil. Established plants tolerate drought. Of relatively brief seasonal interest, this shrub works best in naturalistic plantings or mixed borders. Prune old branches back to strong new growth immediately after bloom.
