Miniature Snowflake Mock Orange
Philadelphus x virginalis 'Dwarf Snowflake'
|Description||A dwarf flowering shrub with a natural vase shape. Wonderfully fragrant double flowers provide a delightful spring landscape accent. Densely branched with attractive, lush green foliage. Cut stems are great for floral arrangements. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 3 to 4 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||This conveniently sized native shrub hails from the colder northern states. Smaller size makes it possible in city gardens or as foundation planting underneath windows. Its pure coloring blends well with all the deciduous flowering shrubs. Line it up as a boundary hedge or plant along fence lines. Excellent in shrub borders or as a background for perennial beds. Excellent choice for all white moonlight gardens.|
|Companion Plants||Peony (Paeonia); Forsythia (Forsythia); Clematis (Clematis); Lilac (Syringa); Daylily (Hemerocallis)|
|Care||Prefers enriched, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, prune annually after flowering.|
|Lore||This plant was classified in the Saxifragaceae family by Linnaeus who named the genus for King Ptolemy Philadelphus of the 3rd century BC.|
