    Mockorange is a delightfully old-fashioned plant that has unfortunately fallen out of favor, mostly due to its enormous size. Illuminati Tiny Tower mockorange stands to breathe new life into this classic favorite, though, combining a landscape-friendly size with a totally unique space-saving habit. It naturally grows in a very narrow, upright way, each sturdy stem a stack of rugged, deep green leaves that looks like a four-sided tower. In late spring/early summer, hundreds of fragrant white flowers emerge from between the leaves for striking show that truly celebrates the season. 

    Top reasons to grow Illuminati Tiny Tower mockorange:

    - never-before-seen space-saving habit takes up a fraction of the room of older varieties

    - very fragrant white flowers in late spring/early summer have a sweet fragrance that carries on the warm breezes

    - Deer resistant and drought tolerant
