And I thought I was the only person who either could not grow mock
oranges or for whom they would not bloom.  Read about how great mock
oranges were; how fragrant; how lovely, so I had to have one.....I
have had this plant for years; have pruned and not pruned and find it
a very awkward looking, down right unattractive plant that doesn't
bloom worth squat.  Been threatening to tear it out for ages.  Think
I will do it this year, by gum!!  You have inspired me, Kitty!

Will be interested to find out if that double flowered form is worth
a hoot:-)
