Orange Blossom

Orange Blossom

I have three different types of bushes and I don't know the names of any of them!! (all from cuttings from friends)
They are beautiful this year though, a real summer perfume!

I think they might be Deutzias. Try D sabra & D setchuenensis. Lovely shaped shrub, whatever it is.

This is definitely orange blossom Feverfew, (beeeautiful perfume!) but I don't know which one.
I have three orange blossom bushes and they all look different, but they all have the lovely scent.

I have just been trying to look up Orange Blossom/Mock Orange.
I have found that one of my bushes is definitely Philadephus 'Virginal' and the one pictured here could well be Philadelphus 'Lewisii Blizzard' I think!
I still don't know yet what my other one is though. It blossoms earlier than these 2 and I didn't take any photos of it this year!!

Sorry Shirlwhirl, my mistake! I didn't see the caption at the top of your pic & couldn't see the flowers closely enough. I love the smell of orange blossom too. The single flowered ones are always best I think, both for scent & appearance of the flowers.
