Withstanding the incredibly harsh growing conditions that the high plains of Wyoming could throw at it, Cheyenne® Mock Orange had proven its resiliency and superiority over other common Philadelphus in the trade.
Blooming in late spring with a profusion of large, pure white, four petal flowers, one of the best reasons to invite Cheyenne® Mock Orange into your landscape is to enjoy the intensely sweet citrus scent of the flowers. The blossoms of this tough, hardy shrub have an amazing fragrance, making it irresistible to gardeners and pollinators alike!
As illustrated by its history, Cheyenne® Mock Orange is adaptable in its water needs, and is exceptionally cold-hardy, withstanding USDA zone 3 winter temperatures (to - 40° F). Once established, the shrub is very xeric, but is also happy with moderate watering. This hardy shrub grows well in a wide range of soil types including clay. Growing to a modest size, 6-9 ft in height and 5-8 ft wide, it does well in sun or part shade conditions, even dry dappled shade.
