Mock Orange is named for its springtime clusters of small white flowers that have a scent reminiscent of orange blossoms. Though their fragrance is delightful, Variegated Mock Orange is valued more for its greenery than for its flower power. This evergreen shrub is densely packed with glossy green and yellow foliage that forms a uniform mound with little to no pruning. However, if pruning is your passion, then Variegated Mock Orange is OK with that, too! Whether placed in formal or informal settings, it looks great as a foundation, a screen for utility boxes, a trimmed or natural hedge, or a long-lived container plant.
