Mock Orange: “Lewis"

May just look like your ordinary white garden flower, but the wild Mock Orange ("Lewis") is hardy, reliable, and the reason why planting natives in your garden is so worthwhile. I bought a pack of 10 of these at the spring native plant sale up north, and all but one have grown happily and are budding or already in bloom like this one near our peach and combo pear tree. Attracting local pollinators while adding some pretty - and truly rolling with the punches in our climate? It's a no-brainer.

Oh and did I mention how delicious they smell...?!!
