Sh.# 6 LONG ISLAND MOCK ORANGE Philadelphus falconeri

Purchased from T. Smith nursery of Newry and planted by Mr Hammond in February 1931.

The origin of this mock orange is not known; it was first distinguished in Parson’s nursery at Flushing, Long Island, USA, and is probably a hybrid.

Large, bushy shrub with thin, lax twig system. Barely-toothed, soft, smallish leaves, ovate to lanceolate, smooth, except for a narrow line of hairs on each side of the central vein. Flowers single, with pointed petals, in terminal clusters of 5 or so; slight fragrance.
