I am trying to find the species of what I believe to be Mock Orange is in our garden - it has the same flowering & leaf characteristics, but it is 5-6 metres tall - the only mock orange I have researched however grows no more than 3 metres tall

Any ideas?

Photos?

Reply from Nicola

Hi Richard, Some photos would really help with this identification. Do you have any digital ones you can add? If yes, please reply to me, and just above the message box you will see a tick box. Select that and then look for the first photo. Click 'submit' button at the bottom of the page and your photo will be added.

If you have a few, do the same thing for each as we currently only allow one image per post.

All the best
Nicola

Thanks! Close-ups?

Reply from Nicola

Hi there - we have been mulling this one over. Can you add a close-up of the leaves and any flowers if there are any? Thanks Nicola

Philadelphus pubescens

Reply from richard wylde

Hi - afraid my camera has died (!) however
I've found Philadelphus pubescens which apparently only gets to 3.5 meters, but I've found a photo of it which appears much taller -

do you think it might be similar ?

Mystery Philadelphus

Reply from Kathy C

Hi, Richard,
Though a bit stumped by your plant, I think it could be Philadelphus 'Virginal' as, according to the information I have, it grows to 3m or more. Since it is quite a vigorous shrub, I think it is highly likely it could grow as high as the one in your garden, particularly if it hasn't been pruned in quite some time. And, as proved by the photo you found on flickr, plants often don't follow 'the rules'! When your camera is once again amongst the living, would you post a photo of the leaves - that will really help confirm identification.
