Not finicky about soil, though best growth and flowering in well-drained soils with even moisture. Prune after flowering if desired.
Philadelphus typically has dull, paper-thin leaves that appear ratty and tattered, but Illuminati Arch philadelphus has thick, handsome, rugged foliage that keeps its deep green color all season long. Early summer brings cascades of white flowers with the sweet, old-fashioned mock orange scent everyone loves.
