Re: Off to the Garden -> Philadelphus

We were supposed to get rain Fri-Sat-Sun, none so far except Thurs
overnight.  I spent about 6 hrs in the garden yesterday and got a few things
done.  While looking for spaces to tuck things in, lo and behold, my Mock
Orange was blooming!  No fragrance, but at least it bloomed.  It's a
sprawling, leggy thing with little to its credit, so it may still get yanked
someday.  But after trying for 15 yrs to get a Philadelphus to flower, I did
derive some pleasure from this one blooming in its third year.
I've got two in full flower; I think it's maybe this wet and cool/cold
spring which does it, though it never fails to flower. Both about 10' tall
and 8' wide.
