A member of the Hydrangaceae, P. coronarius  ( Mock Orange) is native to southern Europe. Most of the members of the family (about 60 spp) are found in North and Central America. They are generally deciduous and characterised by heavily scented star shaped white flowers in spring. We discovered  a dozen of these when we removed the  laurels from the western side of the Memorial Garden. We also have several varieties, including one, probably "Dainty Lady" which is flushed with pink.
