This is a beautiful deciduous, arching shrub that's at home as a specimen plant, in a woodland area or in a cottage garden. The pure white flowers have conspicuous purple markings in the centre and are deliciously fragrant. Masses of these flowers are produced in loose racemes from early to mid-summer and these are the real attraction of this mock orange. The leaves are oval and dark green. Cut back shoots to a strong bud each year after flowering. On older plants, remove roughly a quarter of the oldest branches each year to encourage new growth. To propagate, take softwood cuttings in summer or hardwood cuttings in autumn or winter. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
