A compact mounded flowering shrub covered in sweetly scented double white blooms in early summer; spectacular in flower, fades to the background the rest of the year, use in conjunction with other plants; very adaptable, good compact form for a mockorange.

The serrated oval leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color. Snow Dwarf Mockorange is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It has no significant negative characteristics.
