Why it's a standout: Mock orange's white spring flowers are a favorite for butterflies and have a delicious citrus scent. This shrub also boasts pretty peeling bark, which you can show off by pruning out a few lower limbs. Varieties can grow up to 10 feet tall, but for smaller gardens, try 'Miniature Snowflake,' a double-flowered cultivar that stands just 3 feet tall.
What it needs: Full sun to partial shade; average, well-drained soil
Zones: 4 to 8
