Variegated Japanese Mock Orange. When I first saw this jewel in an English garden center in 2000 I was totally taken by it. This is one of the best variegations in the woody plant kingdom. The leaves have a broad white margin with a pewter green center giving the appearance from a distance of a silver mound. The leaves are half the size of the species, but the flowers are very similar; although, they tend to be lost in the variegated foliage. This selection can be easily maintained at a 2-3' height with a little judicious shearing, but left unattended it will reach a height of 5-6'. I think once this cultivar becomes better known, that it will take the horticultural work by storm.
