Another "what is this?"

I see these all around town.
Someone has planted these in all the back azaleas.
My father almost pulled one out thinking it was a weed.

They're a very traditional shrub called Mock Orange, Amy - Philadelphus is the botanical name. I have two kinds - larger single flowers are showier but have no scent. The smaller ones have a light fragrance. Some doubles are really scented.

Wow! Thanks!
If I would have just looked closely at your last post,
I could have found out what
it was. :)

Blogs really are a great way to communicate and learn.

Do your Mock Orange flowers have a scent, Amy? Some smell wonderful, but the kind on my blog is scentless.

No, mine has no scent.
I think its the Philadelphus inodorus you talk about on your site.

Its funny that when I told my father it was mock orange, he didn't believe me and insisted it was English Dogwood. You cleared that one up for me as well. :)

Mock Orange is a really pretty flower. I like their simplicity.
