The Mockorange is medium sized deciduous shrub which can reach a mature height of 3-10 feet. It is native to Western North America from British Columbia and Alberta to Washington State, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and California. The leaves grow in opposing fashion along the branches and clusters of fragrant white flowers form in the spring to summer months which yield to small, dark brown colored fruit. In the wild, the species provides excellent cover for local wildlife, providing good browsing material for deer and elk as well as Quail and Squirrels. In landscaping, it is used commonly for hedges and yard borders and is considered a low maintenance shrub. It excels in moist, well-drained soils, and is very useful for reinforcing embankments.
The Mockorange prefers deep, rich loam soil as well as rocky and gravelly loams. It prefers moist, well drained soil but can adapt to drier soil. It prefers a full sun exposure, but is tolerant of partial shade conditions.
