Answer: Mock orange (Philadelphus) is reasonably adaptable. It thrives in full sunshine in most gardens but appreciates partial afternoon shade in the hottest climates. You can plant it near your back window where it gets morning sun and afternoon shade. It should grow nicely for you. You cannot start this plant from seed but you can root some of the new growth (called cuttings) by taking 6" long stems, removing the lower leaves and sticking it into a glass of water. It should root within a few weeks. Enjoy your new mock orange!
