philadelphus - mock orange

Genus: Philadelphus.

Species: Philadelphus coronarius.

This plant is about three years old. It was transplanted during the winter with a thick layer of snow on it and frozen through so it is definitely hardy!

Later in the spring it will have hundreds of white silky flowers over it which smell of summer and I expect it to grow to about 8ft
