Description

Philadelphus typically has dull, paper-thin leaves that appear ratty and tattered, but not this one: Illuminati Arch mock orange has all the beauty and fragrance of a classic selection but in a handsome, refined package.  The leaves are thick, rugose, dark green, looking more like a viburnum than a mock orange. The contrast between flowers and foliage is choice!
