The Illuminati Sparks Philadelphus is an absolute beauty that shines during the late spring and early summer when the fragrant blooms are on full display, and this shrub continues to dazzle throughout the summer. This deciduous tree is also known as Philadelphus coronarius, sweet mock orange, or English dogwood. Delicate white 4-petaled flowers encircle prominent yellow stamens. Each branch is completely covered in flowers when this shrub is in bloom. The Illuminati Sparks mock orange will continue to provide visual interest thanks to its green foliage with swirls of yellow variegation.

Plant the philadelphus in a border bed, along a foundation, or create a hedge. Feature this flowering shrub in a container so you can place it on a porch or patio while it is in bloom. This compact plant is hospitable to pollinators like bees and butterflies. The Illuminati Sparks is disease- and deer-resistant, and it grows as a perennial in USDA zones 4 through 7.

Illuminati Sparks™ Mock Orange Care

Mock orange shrubs need full to part sun, so find a spot that receives at least 4 hours of light, but keep in mind that this flowering stunner can handle increased light. Rich, alkaline soil that retains some moisture but promotes drainage is ideal. Feed the plant once a month during the growing season using a balanced fertilizer.

This shrub blooms on old growth, so prune after the flowers die back. Give the plant a rejuvenating trim every few years to promote new growth. Mock orange shrubs are prone to send out suckers or shoots. Shoots can be left in place to create more plants; however, the initial plant may not produce as many flowers if it also supports a whole colony of plants. Remove the suckers to prevent self-propagation and enjoy plentiful blooms.

Illuminati Sparks™ Mock Orange Spacing

At 3 to 4 feet tall and wide, the Illuminati Sparks Philadelphus maintain a compact size, making it ideal for featuring in a large planter. Create a hedge or define a space by planting several shrubs 3 to 4 feet apart so the branches will reach the neighboring plant once they mature.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
