Latin Name


Mock orange plants are shrubs that are native to northern and central America, Asia, and southeast Europe. The beautiful white flowers resemble, at first glance, flowers of a citrus tree and smell like flowers found on an orange tree. These plants are mainly grown for the aroma and the display of flowers that bloom in late spring.
