This hybrid musk is growing under a black walnut tree in my garden. Despite the shade and the juglone, it blooms happily in that spot and regularly climbs to about 12 feet although I try to maintain a more shrub-like form by pruning it down throughout the year to about 8 feet tall and 5 feet wide. The petal-packed blooms are carried in fragrant clusters.
