Natchez Mock Orange
Philadelphus x virginalis 'Natchez'
|Description||This fountain-shaped shrub is noted for its highly ornamental, large, white flowers, which carry a light fragrance much like the scent of orange blossoms. Branches are covered with lush green foliage for an attractive effect even when not in flower. Ideal as a seasonal specimen or when planted en masse to create a quick screen. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 6 to 8 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge, Privacy Screen|
|Design Ideas||This is a big fountain-shaped Mock Orange that stands tall at the back of any bed or border. Grow as a single specimen in a prominent part of the garden or use a matched pair to flank a fountain, treillage or work of garden art. Line them up for an intensely fragrant side-yard or backyard screen or as a green seasonal background for more colorful summer flowering plants. Certainly a candidate for any cottage or country garden.|
|Companion Plants||Peony (Paeonia); Forsythia (Forsythia); Lilac (Syringa); Clematis (Clematis); 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.|
