If it is beauty and fragrance you crave, the mock orange bush will give it to you and much more if only for a few weeks. The blooms profusely in late spring and then the flowers gradually fall or fade away. I wish there was a way to harness the scent of the mock orange and create a natural perfume or an essential oil. For now I will enjoy its lush beauty, radiance and scent. The one downside to this plant is its short blooming period which is just about two to three weeks. During that time, however, just enjoy this plant in all its glory and its intoxicating fragrance that pervades the entire garden.
