Question for bumblebeez

Do you have any more pics of that gorgeous Mock Orange?
I have never grown one but bought one this past Thursday. It is a Snow White Sensation Mock Orange.
We are in the same area and I was wondering how long have you had it planted? Do you have any problems with Japanese Beetles eating it?

Thanks in advance,
Lsst

RE: Question for bumblebeez

Thanks lsst! I will be at my mil's tomorrow but will take some more pictures Monday. Mine is 7 years old. It is an unattractive shrub most of the year so I have it planted in with some other shrubs and not as a specimen. I also heavily prune it for arrangements each year.
Japanese beetles probably do eat some leaves but again, it's in an unobtrusive area of the yard so I don't care.

Some years it gets little white caterpillars that really eat up the leaves but it hasn't ever effected the next years bloom. I did buy it in bloom and it is highly fragrant.
I just love it though!
