Lazy SS Farm in VA is closed. They had wonder Mock Orange shrubs that smelled so good. Where can you get them now? I live in North East Tennessee.

Just google "vendors for mock orange".
Or try a local nursery in your area. If they don't have it, perhaps they can order one.

Big Bill: It is a dead end here in East TN. so far. No one is ordering them and I have been referred twice to Lazy SS Farms because they were apparently wonderful and people here don't know they have closed. Turning to this web site to find someone who knows of a nursery that carries them or someone who has one willing to layer it.Vendors are reluctant to order them because new cultivars either don't smell or smell good . A Vendor who has access to old Mock Orange stock is my best bet!

I wish Lazys's Farm left their pages up for reference.

Hey Lizzy, I just googled "vendors for mock orange". A plant site came up asking for an address, zip code or state that I was inquiring from. I entered Tennessee. About 15 or so vendors popped up.
Now I have no idea of where exactly any of them are in Tennessee but I imagine a couple might be near you. I saw that a Lowe's had them so maybe at a Lowe's near you, it could be ordered by you?

Are you just looking for an unnamed shrub or a particular variety? If an old shrub grows near you chances are good for a self sower to be nearby.

I just found some on the arborday.org website. Under $10/shrub for Philadelphus coronarius. 1'-1.5' bareroot plants.

I'm too new to paste in the link, but, a simple Google search for Mock Orange Shrub brought that plus a few other online nurseries that sell them.

Good Luck! Smiling
Moving from New York to the Treasure Coast leaves me feeling like a newbie in the Garden. Nevermind that I've been at it for 35 years! :P
