    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know which variety of Philadelphus this is? I've scoured the web but I can't find a variety with single flowers and five petals, like this one. It was a cutting from a neighbour's plant, both long gone.

    Any help gratefully received, thanks!

      Are you sure it's a Philadelphus ?
      The only ones I know have bowl shaped flowers not star shaped.

      Welcome to GC Pye :sign0016:

      I'm no expert :)but I have one of these and I think it's called Blizzard as it has the 5 petals:spinning:

      I'm sure more of the experts will be along soon to confirm which one it is :dbgrtmb:
