Prized for its incredible fragrance, award-winning Philadelphus ‘Manteau d’Hermine’ is a compact small deciduous shrub of great beauty when in bloom. In late spring to early summer, its elegantly arching branches bear a profusion of highly-scented, double white flowers, 1.5 in. across (4 cm), borne in small clusters. The blossoms stand out against the foliage of oval, dark green leaves. Introduced in the late 1800s by French plant hybridizer Victor Lemoine, Manteau d’Hermine is still very popular today thanks to its sensational fragrance. An excellent dwarf Mock Orange that deserves a spot where its fragrance can be enjoyed. Perfect for small gardens!
