Product Details

Tuck this tower-shaped variety of Mock Orange into any small space in the garden, for a spring showing of sweetly fragrant white flowers between deep green leaves. Plant near a window to enjoy the orange-like fragrance, or bring cuttings indoors for a beautiful arrangement. Deer resistant and drought tolerant too. A Proven Winners®/Color Choice® variety. 'SMNPVG' PP 31,865

The 65 species and countless hybrids of Philadelphus are undemanding, free-flowering, and possess a sweet fragrance that perfumes entire sections of our gardens in early summer. Most Mock Oranges are erect growers, arching more or less with age. They like full sun, though they'll tolerate light shade, and well-drained soil.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Not Deer Resistant

I purchased this about 3 years ago. Every late spring, it get buds, and the deer come and eat it down. I may have seen only one flower the whole time. The shrub never grew, it is the same size as when I got it because of the deer. This year, 2023, I dug it out, and moved it into my backyard where the deer can't go. I'll see if it will finally get a chance to reach 4 feet high. Right now it's about maybe a foot high. I am only giving 2 stars, because it's advertised as deer resistant, but it certainly is not.

Not so glorious

Lovely plant, healthy, bushy. But it never flowered. Never even had buds.
