Reviewed By: Shene Underwood (Sallisaw, OK)
I bought three and deer ate the tops out the first week. I put human hair around them and they are growing so fast. I was so pleased to see a flower on one already. I can't wait till they are full size. They are not even two feet yet.

Dissapointed.
Reviewed By: Jamie (Henniker, NH)
I was so looking forward to this as most of my purchases have grown to be great. But this was just not to be. It was a dead twig with no growth at all. I did pot and baby it because sometimes you just never know but no such luck. I did get a refund but still, I lost out on a season and and makes me wonder if it was shipped dead to begin with. Three stars for the good customer service.

WOW!!

"There was a Mock Orange bush next to the back door of my grandparents ""farm"" as I was growing up. I never forgot it! Now that my husband and I have our own home (Age 65 & 74; VA FINALLY agreed he was in VietNam and was due his benefits!) we are planning a fantastic garden on our 1 acre. 2 bushes will be ordered shortly...this was the ONLY place I could find it, so I will be doing MORE shopping with you. Our home will be filled with that WONDERFUL perfume!! THANK YOU!!!!"

Butterflies LOVE this plant!
Reviewed By: B. Spurr (Winslow, IN)
We recently moved to a place that had two bushes (that`s it 2). My husband discovered something amazing, and said I just had to see it. These two mock orange bushes were in full bloom and were absolutely covered with butterflies. They have the sweetest scent that just fills the air. I took many pretty photos and will never forget that day!

Winner!!
Reviewed By: James (Ames, IA)
I was shocked with how quickly the dormant twigs took life. If you follow the directions provided it is fool proof. I have quite a knack for killing perfectly good plants, but these are thriving and beautiful!!! I look forward to the fragrant blooms in the years to come.

the fragrance is intoxicating
Reviewed By: bernice mason (casper, Wyoming)
I bought an old house with an established yard. On the north side of the house is an, (at the time) unknown shrub standing about 6 feet tall behind some overgrown junipers. When it blooms the air is heavy with a sweet scent that drifts throughout the neighborhood. People walking by will stop and ask me what it is. I took a cutting of it to the ag agent, and they told me it is called a mock orange because it looks and smells like orange blossoms. The flowers stay on most of the month of June. I am moving to a new house without vegitation. The first thing I will plant is a mock orange shrub. I have never seen one before, and I'm thrilled that Gurney carries them.
