Also known as Syringa, this deciduous shrub can grow 6 to 12 feet tall, with an erect, loosely bunched growth form. It grows in a variety of different habitats at lower to middle elevations throughout Washington. Has an abundance of white, sweetly-scented flowers which bloom in May and June. Often found in coastal forests, sagebrush, bunchgrass, and Ponderosa pine ecosystems. Mock orange is an excellent soil and streambank stabilizer, which is why it is great for conservation needs.
