A wonderful genus of shrubs. The flowers come both as single or double and Manteau d’hermine is a dwarf variety with creamy double flowers. Hanging in heavy profusion their blossom gives the most glorious scent which epitomize sunny days in a garden.
A deciduous shrub with light green leaves and easy to grow in most soils as long as it is reasonably fertile. They are happy in full sun or light shade. They can be planted as a specimen, in groups and are lovely in a herbaceous border or keep in a pot near the house for the exquisite scent. Pruning should take place either after flowering or in winter and should consist of removing some of the old and weaker wood in order to regenerate the bush. Weeding, and adding mulch and feed when young is beneficial.
Greatly loved by both bees and bumble bees so if you care for them, plant a Philadelphus to give pleasure to all.
