GALAHAD MOCKORANGE Philadelphus x 'Galahad'
The Galahad Mockorange is valued for its large clear white flowers that are very fragrant--similar to the smell of orange blossoms--hence the name. Their late June, early July period of bloom make them stand out in the garden because few shrubs bloom during this time.
Small Shrub: Height 1.2 to 1.5 m (4 to 5 ft).
Foliage: Medium textured, dark green.
Flowers: Abundant large white flowers are very showy and very fragrant. When in bloom, this plant will be the focal point of the garden.
Comments: Although this mockorange is not as hardy as the Waterton Mockorange, its wonderful fragrance makes it worthy of trial.
