Mock Orange

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Mock Orange
  • Latin Name: Philadelphus coronarius
  • Family Name: Hydrangeaceae
Although there are no known hazards, Mock Orange is rich in saponins.  The plant can be used in soap and polishes; so probably one to avoid, but not to worry if the blossom is accidently eaten.

Do not confuse with Mexican Orange Blossom (Choisya ternata), sometimes called Mock Orange.
