Philadelphus is loved by gardeners for their late spring, early summer citrus fragrance. Pollinators love them too as they are rich with nectar. These deciduous shrubs have a quick growth rate of about 2 feet per year. They must have good drainage, as they cannot tolerate being waterlogged. They require on average 4 hours of sunlight a day. Feed with a nitrogen light fertilizer to avoid excessive leaf growth which can hinder blossom development.
