Philadelphus x virginalis 'Miniature Snowflake'

Philadelphus x virginalis 'Miniature Snowflake'
mock orange
Philadelphus x virginalis 'Miniature Snowflake'

Common name mock orange
Family hydrangeaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z5-8)
Flowers white (June)
Size 4'
Light sun-part shade

Lovely fragrant double white flowers in late spring. Unfortunately, they appear on a somewhat rangy-looking shrub with not much else going for it - so we transplanted it from the side garden to the composting area (something's gotta smell good around there!).
The more commonly listed cultivar is Minnesota Snowflake, but ours seems to top out at 4-5 ft, which is consistent with the Miniature designation.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
