Mock orange Philadelphus 'Virginal' white - Bare rooted - Hardy plant

Philadelphus 'Virginal'
Deliciously scented!
Mock Orange (Philadephus 'Virginal') is a vigorously growing, fragrant, ornamental shrub that produces masses of semi-double creamy-white flowers in spring. One of the strongest ornamental shrubs that tolerates virtually any type of soil. Height supplied 60-80 cm.

If you buy deciduous shrubs in autumn they might not be looking quite as beautiful as usual. The big benefit of planting shrubs in autumn is that by spring they will be well rooted in the garden and ready to burst into growth.

Make sure the root ball of Philadelphus 'Virginal' is well-moistened by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water before planting. Prepare a suitable hole in humus-rich soil that is not too dry. Improve your garden soil by mixing in some compost. Plant the Mock Orange 'Virginal' at the appropriate depth in the hole. The top of the root system should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Place the shrub in an area with complete sunshine or semi shade. It is very wind resistant.


Philadelphus 'Virginal' is a strong, rich-flowering ornamental shrub. Regular pruning is necessary in order to ensure a compact flowering shrub. After flowering, trim half of the older branches back to a healthy young branch. In time your Mock Orange will be completley rejuveneted. In winter, prune all branches to 40 cm above ground level. Pruning is well tolerated by this shrub.


Mock Orange looks beautiful in the shrub border, as a solitary feature or even as a loose-growing hedge. The white flowers are semi-double and spread a wonderful fragrance. Put a sprig in a vase and enjoy its fragrant flowers inside your home.
