In June and July, the arching shoots of this deciduous shrub are smothered in deliciously fragrant, double, creamy-white flowers and mid-green leaves. On warm, summer evenings, the delicate, orange-blossom fragrance floats on the breeze. This compact, bushy, variety of the popular mock orange is perfect for a small garden of where border space is limited. An essential, low-maintenance shrub for a sunny mixed border, it can also cope with urban pollution and salt-laden air.

Mulch around the roots in spring with a deep layer of well-rotted garden compost or manure. Prune in late summer, immediately after flowering, removing one in four of the older stems to ground level.
