Philadelphus

Planting:

Spacing will depend on the ultimate height and spread of the particular species. Choose a location in sun or light shade (the latter being preferable in zones farther south). While widely tolerant of soil types, Philadelphus prefers a moisture-retentive but well-drained soil. Mulch at planting time. Plants will begin to bloom in about three years, once they’re established.


Maintenance:

We recommend an annual application of mulch. Water well during periods of drought. A thorough pruning should be undertaken after flowering; remove old wood at this time to promote better growth habit and flower production. Add bonemeal or superphosphate in spring or fall to encourage flowering.
