Mock Orange takes its revenge
In 2009, I pruned this big Mock Orange severely, cutting back branches and cutting others completely out. Last year, it bloomed but contained itself and I got a little worried I had butchered the poor thing. Well, it decided to show me this June that it didn't care one bit. The worse thing is trying to mow under the shrub, the branches will literally grab your hair and jerk your head right back!
I hate to do all that work again, but I will have to prune it back this year. The branches can be so long and tangled, it can be a frustrating experience.
